Hwy 55 closed between Wright CR 8/Oak Ave in Maple Lake and Hwy 25 in Buffalo through July. Follow the detour along CR 8/Oak Ave, CR 37 and Hwy 25. Also, to ease traffic flow, expect a temporary traffic signal at the CR 8/CR 37 intersection in Maple Lake.
Local traffic impacts
Access is open and maintained to local traffic on Hwy 55 between Maple Lake and Buffalo, however expect changes and gravel surfaces when navigating through the work zone. The road will also be temporarily impassable in areas to complete underground culvert work. Seek nearest route, PDF
Culvert work, full-closure July 15-20
Local traffic will no longer be able to use the stretch of Hwy 55 between Wright CR 12 and Hwy 25 in Buffalo as crews replace two large culverts/pipes beneath the road. The road will be impassable. They will replace one culvert/pipe at a time. Seek other side roads or use the official Hwy 55 detour.
