Hwy 24 Clearwater to Clear Lake reduced to single lane overnight beginning June 3

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists who travel Hwy 24 between Clearwater and Clear Lake will encounter overnight delays as segments of the road are temporarily reduced to a single lane overnight beginning Sunday, June 3.

The nightly lane closures on Hwy 24 will occur from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., up to seven days per week, through June 19.

The temporary lane closures are needed while crews resurface the road.

The resurfacing is part of a larger project that will resurface four miles of Hwy 24 between 179th Street and Hwy 10 in Clear Lake; replace sidewalk along Hwy 24/Main Street through Clear Lake; upgrade signal systems in Clearwater and add flashing yellow arrows; improve pedestrian accessibility through Clear Lake, and at the I-94/County Road 75 interchange in Clearwater; and install or repair sidewalks and pedestrian crossings in Clear Lake.

When complete in August, the project will result in a smoother ride, extend the life of the roadway and improve traffic flow, safety and accessibility along the Hwy 24 corridor through Clearwater and Clear Lake.

Hwy 10 Clear Lake to Big Lake project also underway

Motorists who travel through Clear Lake should also be aware that both directions of Hwy 10 between Clear Lake and Big Lake will be reduced to a single lane 24 hours per day beginning July 12. The closures are needed as part of a major project to reconstruct eastbound Hwy 10 between Clear Lake and Big Lake, improve safety the Hwy 10/County Road 23 intersection and make other improvements.
