Hwy 65 segments in East Bethel, Isanti, Edgewood reduced to single lane beginning March 26

ST CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists who travel both directions of Highway 65 between CR 19/305th Avenue in Edgewood and 245th Avenue in East Bethel should plan for delays and intermittent slow traffic as segments of the road are reduced to a single lane beginning Monday, March 26.

The lane closures will occur Mondays through Saturdays, during non-rush hours, through June 1.

The lane closures mark the beginning of the second year of work on a two-year project to improve Highway 65 between Cambridge and 245th Avenue in East Bethel.

The project will resurface the roadway, extend turn lanes, repair or replace drainage infrastructure, resurface the Highway 65/Highway 95 interchange ramps in Cambridge, make intersection improvements, upgrade signal systems and improve pedestrian accessibility.

When complete in June 2018, the project will improve the ride, drainage and safety along 14 miles of Highway 65.
