Update - Hwy 169, Sherburne County Road 4 closures in Zimmerman through August

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Motorists traveling through the Highway 169/Sherburne County Road 4 intersection in Zimmerman may encounter delays and lane and road closures as work continues through August.

Motorists should plan for the following:

  • Both directions of Highway 169 at County Road 4 intermittently reduced to a single lane during non-rush hours.
  • The right-turn lane from northbound Highway 169 to eastbound County Road 4 will close.
  • The left-turn lane from southbound Highway 169 to eastbound County Road 4 will close.
  • County Road 4 will close east of Highway 169, between Highway 169 and 120th Street. Motorists may follow the signed detour along Highway 169, County Road 19/245th Avenue, and County Road 19/104th Street, or find their own alternate routes.

The closures, which began in July, are needed while crews install new signal systems, improve turn lanes and County Road 4. When complete the project will improve traffic flow, safety and accessibility at the busy intersection.

The work is part of a larger project to improve County Road 4 and the Highway 169/County Road 4 intersection in Zimmerman. The project is being led by Sherburne County. For more information, contact Sherburne County or visit www.co.sherburne.mn.us/publicworks/transport/constructionProjects.php.
