Hwy 27 segment at County Road 47, east of Lastrup, closes June 25

Detour adds one mile to trip

ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Motorists who travel Hwy 27 between Lastrup and Onamia will encounter a detour and delays after Hwy 27 between Morrison County Road 47 and 350th Avenue/Ranch Road closes Monday, June 25, through late-July.

Motorists should follow the signed detour along County Road 47 and County Road 23, or plan their own alternate routes.

The closure is needed while crews replace the Hwy 27 bridge spanning the Skunk River tributary.

When complete, the project will replace the existing bridge with a new, lower-maintenance box culvert bridge with wider shoulders and upgraded guardrail. The project will preserve the river tributary crossing, and improve safety and drainage in the area.
