Hwy 15/County Road 1 traffic changes in Sartell begin May 24

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists may encounter delays near the Highway 15/County Road 1 intersection in Sartell as two ramps open, two ramps close, and a new detour begins Tuesday, May 24. Detour map (PDF).

Motorists can expect the following after 7 p.m. Tuesday:

  • The two ramps on the south side of intersection will open. The ramps have been closed since April 25, 2016.
  • The ramp from southbound Highway 15 to westbound County Road 1 will close. A signed detour will direct motorists along southbound Highway 15, to eastbound County Road 120, to County Road 1.
  • The ramp from westbound County Road 1 to northbound Highway 15 will close. A signed detour will direct motorists from County Road 1, to westbound County Road 120, to northbound Highway 15.

The closures are needed as part of a project that will resurface Highway 15 between Highway 23/Division Street in St. Cloud and the Benton Drive interchange in Sauk Rapids, and improve the Highway 15/12th Street N and Highway 15/County Road 1 intersections.

When complete, the project will result in a smoother ride, improve traffic flow and accessibility and improve pedestrian safety.

For more information on 2016 roadwork on Highway 15 in St. Cloud, Sauk Rapids and Sartell visit www.mndot.gov/d3/stc/.

A separate Stearns County project to improve County Road 1 at Highway 15 in Sartell will begin later this year.
