ST. CLOUD, Minn.—The Minnesota Department of Transportation advises motorists to expect stop-and-go traffic on Highway 25 as the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad crossing closes to install updates and make repairs in Monticello, Wright County, Oct. 16–19.
>Highway 25 will close in each direction between Fourth Street and Sixth Street from 6 a.m. Monday, Oct. 16, until Thursday evening, Oct. 19. Here’s what will occur:
- Northbound Highway 25 will reduce to one lane and detour along East Sixth Street, Cedar Street and East Fourth Street.
- Southbound Highway 25 will reduce to one lane and detour along West Fourth Street, Walnut Street and West Sixth Street.
- Semi-trailers and wide-turning vehicles will use a signed truck route along Broadway Street East (Wright County Road 75) and Interstate 94 in Monticello.
West Broadway Street (Wright County Road 75) is closed to through traffic for a city of Monticello work project. East Broadway Street remains open.
To avoid delays, consider other routes or travel at off-peak times. Commuters who travel between Highway 10 and I-94 will want to consider alternate Mississippi River crossings—Highway 24 Clear Lake to Clearwater or Highway 101 Elk River to Rogers.
The schedule is led by the BNSF Railway.
