Shoulders close while crews clear trees at Highway 65/107 intersection near Braham March 21–22

New intersection construction begins late-April

St. Cloud, Minn. – Motorists who travel through the Highway 65/107 intersection near Braham will encounter crews, heavy equipment and potential slow traffic while road shoulders are closed near the intersection Thursday and Friday, March 21–22.

The shoulder closures will occur during daytime hours while crews clear trees in a preparation for a project to reconstruct the Highway 65/107 intersection beginning in late-April.

The project will install a new “continuous green T intersection” at Highway 65/107. The new design will improve traffic flow and safety at the intersection with the combination of a signal system, raised concrete medians and turn lanes that will maintain continuous flow-through traffic on southbound Highway 65, while also improving safety for motorists who make left-hand turns at the intersection.

Continuous green T intersections have been successfully installed at Highway 12/25 near Montrose, and St. Louis County Road 4/Rice Lake Road and Airport Road in Duluth.

To get information on the project, view the new intersection design and watch a video of a Continuous Green T intersection in action, visit mndot.gov/d3/projects/braham/.
