Overview and timeline

The study kicked off late 2020 and will include several public input opportunities through 2021.

Road and access conditions will be studied through March 2021. This includes traffic counts, traffic forecasts as well as safety concerns within the Hwy 25 study area.

Alternative recommendations will be made by July 2021. Considerations include use of turn lanes, access management, sightlines on curves, shoulders, pedestrian crossings and overall safety along the Hwy 25 corridor.

A Corridor Study Report will be published in Fall 2021.

About this future project

MnDOT will improve Hwy 25 from Catlin St. in Buffalo to Kjellberg Ct. in south Monticello, Wright County. In 2026, the project will:

  • Resurface the road, includes shoulders and turn lanes
  • Construct left turn lanes at Wright Co. Rd. 113
  • Improve the turnaround south of Kjellberg Ct. (extended shoulder called a 'loon')
  • Replace pipes and improve ditch drainage
  • Upgrade the signal system at Wright Co. Rd. 37
  • Consider the safety and access recommendations indicated in the 2021 Corridor Study Report
