Albany area motorists invited to learn details for 2018 Hwy 238 project at open house May 24


St. Cloud, Minn. – Albany area residents and those who travel Highway 238 through Albany are invited to an informal open house to learn about the upcoming project to reconstruct a segment of Highway 238 near North Lake in Albany. The project requires Highway 238 to close for about 14 weeks.

The public open house will be held Thursday, May 24, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at Albany city hall, 400 Railroad Avenue.

Open house attendees will be able to learn about the project’s construction details, detour or other planned traffic changes and schedule, view a layout of the project, speak with project staff, get questions answered and take home project information.

The project will begin June 4, and be completed mid-September. The 14-week road closure and detour is scheduled to begin June 11.

The project will reconstruct about one-half mile of Highway 238 between Railroad Avenue and the southeast side of North Lake, install new underground utilities and improve pedestrian infrastructure.

When complete, the project will provide a smoother ride, and improve drainage and accessibility in the area.

To request an ASL or foreign language interpreter, call 651-366-4720. To request other reasonable accommodations, call 651-366-4718; the Minnesota Relay service toll-free at 1-800-627-3529 (TTY, Voice or ASCII) or 711, or email your request to adarequest.dot@state.mn.us.
