Hwy 15 in Kimball set to open Aug. 9, detour lifts

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – MnDOT is excited to announce that Highway 15 in Kimball, Stearns County, will open by Tuesday, Aug. 9.

Highway 15 has been closed and detoured for four months between Willow Creek Park and Highway 55. The closure allowed crews the opportunity to reconstruct the road surface along with curbs and gutters, underground storm sewer and other utilities; extend the sidewalk south of Linden Avenue to Willow Creek Park and north of Spruce Avenue E. to Highway 55; update or add sidewalk and pedestrian approaches; install a multi-use trail along Highway 15 north of Highway 55; and install overhead street lighting.

The $2.3 million project provides motorists and pedestrians a new, smoother road surface and multi-use trail, improved safety and upgraded city utilities.

MnDOT thanks the community of Kimball for their patience during this Highway 15 project.
