Segments of Hwy 23 Mora to Brook Park reduced to single lane beginning July 9

ST CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists traveling Highway 23 between Highway 65 in Mora and Highway 107, located 10 miles east of Mora, may encounter delays while as segments of the road are reduced to a single lane from sunrise to sunset, up to seven days per week, beginning Monday, July 9.

Crews will reduce up to four miles of Highway 23 to a single lane at a time. Flaggers and a pilot car will allow alternating one-way traffic through each work zone while crews complete their work. Motorists entering any Highway 23 work zone from an intersecting road or driveway must wait for the pilot car and follow it through the work zone.

All lanes of Highway 23 will open by September 17.

The closures are needed while crews resurface the road, extend turn lanes, upgrade guardrail, and install new curb and gutter.

When complete the project will result in a smoother ride, preserve the road’s pavement, improve safety along 10  miles of Highway 23.
