Highway 115 Randall to Camp Ripley roadwork begins June 3

Plan for two-week detour

BAXTER, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation will begin a $3.2 million project on Monday, June 3, that will resurface and improve eight miles of Highway 115 from Randall to Camp Ripley, Morrison County. The project will require a two-week detour.

Here’s what to expect June 3 until late July:

  • Prep work June 3–7: Prepare the work zone and set up the detour.
    • Motorists will encounter periodic lane or shoulder closures along Highway 115.
  • Detour June 10–18: Replace four drainage pipes beneath the roadway. Crews anticipate the work to take up to eight days.
    • Highway 115 will close between Highway 10 in Randall and the Mississippi River bridge in Little Falls. Motorists will follow a signed detour along Highway 10 in Randall and Morrison County Road 76 (Haven Road) in Little Falls. Get the detour and pipe locations map
  • Lane or shoulder closures June 19–late July: Resurface road from Highway 10 to the east entrance of Camp Ripley, upgrade pedestrian sidewalks at Camp Ripley’s main entrance at County Road 213 (Grouse Road) and upgrade guardrail.
    • Motorists will encounter segments of alternate one lane, one-way traffic, flaggers and use of a pilot car through the work zone. Be prepared to slow down, stop and wait.
  • Local traffic: Highway 115 will remain open to those who live, work or visit those along the work zone; however, expect changes and use of alternate accesses. Please slow down, follow construction signs and stay out of barricaded areas.

Schedule is tentative and subject to change.

When complete in late July, travelers will benefit from a smoother road surface, improved drainage and improved safety for motorists and pedestrians.
