Ramps at Hwy 15/CR 1 in Sartell close until May 27


Detour routes traffic to Highway 15/County Road 120 interchange

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists may encounter delays as two ramps at the Highway 15/Stearns County Road 1 intersection in Sartell close beginning Monday, April 25.

After 7 p.m. April 25, the ramp from northbound Highway 15 to eastbound County Road 1 will temporarily close, and the ramp from eastbound County Road 1 to southbound Highway 15 will temporarily close. Both ramps are scheduled to open by May 27.

Signed detours will direct motorists to the Highway 15/County Road 120 interchange, about one mile south of the Highway 15/County Road 1 intersection.

All other ramps at the Highway 15/County Road 1 intersection will remain open. Both directions of County Road 1 at Highway 15 will also remain open until further notice.

Overnight lane closures on segments of Highway 15 between Highway 23 in St. Cloud and the Highway 15/Benton Drive interchange in Sauk Rapids will continue through mid-August.

The closures are part of a project that will resurface Highway 15 between Highway 23/Division Street in St. Cloud and the Benton Drive interchange in Sauk Rapids, and improve the Highway 15/12th Street N intersection and the Highway 15/County Road 1 intersection.

When complete, the project will result in a smoother ride, improve traffic flow and accessibility and improve pedestrian safety.

For more information on 2016 roadwork on Highway 15 in St. Cloud, Sauk Rapids and Sartell visit www.mndot.gov/d3/stc/.

A separate Stearns County project to improve County Road 1 at Highway 15 in Sartell will begin later this year.
