ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists traveling through Eden Valley will encounter short delays and a detour as Hwy 22 from CR 9/Stearns Ave E to Hutcheson Ave is detoured as of Monday, April 14.
Thru May 13: A signed detour will direct motorists along CR 9/Stearns Ave E and back to Hwy 22 north of Eden Valley. The 4 mile north-south segment of CR 9, east of Hwy 22 is currently posted as a 7 ton route, due to spring load restrictions. Motorists over the 7 ton limit should utilize alternate routes, such as Hwy 55 and Hwy 23 through Paynesville. The Hwy 22 detour is expected to return to a 9 ton limit after spring load restrictions are lifted.
Detour slightly modifies May 13; overweight vehicles must continue to take alternative routes
- Detour route changes May 13 (May 9, 2014)
- Use Hwy 55 and CR 9.
- Posted 7 ton limit remains; overweight vehicles use alternative routes.
The closure and detour is part of larger project to reconstruct Hwy 22, segments of Central Ave, Coleman Ave, Cossairt Ave and utilities in Eden Valley. Once completed in August the project will provide:
- A smoother road surface and extended road life
- Improved street lighting for added safety
- New sidewalks with improved pedestrian accessibility
- Upgraded underground utilities
Local businesses and residences along Hwy 22 will remain accessible throughout the closure.
The project is led by the city of Eden Valley. For more information, contact the city of Eden Valley, Chuck DeWolf at 320-212-2846, Kent Louwagie at 320-905-5446 or project representative Phillip DeSchepper at 320-905-2703.
