Hwy 23 lanes in St. Cloud, Waite Park, close for resurfacing July 23–28

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists may encounter crews, heavy equipment and delays along both directions of Highway 23 in St. Cloud and Waite Park as segments of the road are reduced to a single lane overnight July 23­-28.

The lane closures will begin at 8 p.m. each day Sunday, July 23 through Thursday, July 27, on Highway 23 between Lincoln Avenue and Cooper Avenue in St. Cloud, and between Highway 15 and 28th Avenue S in Waite Park. Intersecting roads will also intermittently close along the two Highway 23 segments. All lanes will open by 6:30 a.m. the following day.
Motorists approaching the overnight work zones should slow down, be prepared to stop if necessary, and move over within the work zone as appropriate to give crews a safe space to work.

When complete, the project will result in a smoother ride and extend the life of the roadway.
