Motorists who travel Highway 25, south of Genola, will encounter delays as Highway 25 between Buckman and Little Rock is closed after 7 a.m. Sept. 11.
Highway 25 motorists may follow the signed detour along Morrison County Road 34, County Road 53 and County Road 26, or seek their own alternate routes, the Minnesota Department of Transportation reported in a press release.
Highway 25 between Buckman and Little Rock is scheduled to open Sept. 25.
Area farmers, residents, emergency services professionals and others are invited to an informal informational meeting to learn more about the closure and navigating while crews complete their work. The meeting will be 3-4 p.m. Sept. 7 at the project's portable field office, located at Sunrise Cooperative, 9361 Creamery Road, in Buckman.
Those who need to access property along Highway 25 between Buckman and Little Rock but cannot attend the meeting may contact Kirk Allen at 320-223-6535 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The detour and other lane closures on Highway 25 are needed to resurface or reconstruct Highway 25 from Highway 23 in Foley northward to Genola in Benton and Morrison counties. When complete in October, the project will improve the ride, safety, shoulders and drainage along 27 miles of Highway 25, according to MnDOT.
