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


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:

Local businesses and residences along Hwy 22 will remain accessible throughout the closure.
