Highway 25 motorists invited to learn plans for 2018 Montrose-to-Watertown construction project April 12

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Montrose and Watertown area businesses and residents are encouraged to attend an open house about a major road project that will resurface and reconstruct Highway 25 between Montrose and Watertown in 2018. Highway 25 will be closed to through traffic for several weeks during the project.

The public open house will be held Thursday, April 12, from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at Watertown city hall, 309 Lewis Ave. S.

Open house attendees will be able to learn about the project’s schedule, work to be performed, detours and traffic plans, and take home project information. A project layout will be on display, and MnDOT staff will be available to answer any questions. No presentation is planned, and guests are invited to arrive any time.

The project will begin the week of May 14 and be complete in mid-August, and will resurface or reconstruct Highway 25 between Seventh Street in Montrose and County Road 10/Jefferson Avenue in Watertown, replace three underground pipes and one box culvert bridge, install new LED stop signs at the Highway 25/Wright County Road 30 intersection, repair a slope north of Armitage Avenue, upgrade guardrail and install mumble/rumble strips. When complete, the project will extend the life of the road and improve the ride along eight miles of Highway 25, and improve safety and drainage in the area.
