Highway 25 to close south of Watertown April 28

WATERTOWN, MN – The Minnesota Department of Transporation (MnDOT) has announced motorists traveling Highway 25 near Watertown will encounter a detour and delays as the road closes between Highway 7 and  Wright County Road 30 beginning Monday, April 28.

A signed detour will direct motorists along Highway 7, Carver County Road 33, Wright County Road 8 and Wright County Road 30, a distance of 13 miles. While Highway 25 will remain open to local traffic, a segment of roadway south of Watertown and north of Highway 7, near the south fork of the Crow River, will be impassable.

The closure and detour are needed as crews elevate and reconstruct a segment of Highway 25 prone to flooding.

All lanes of Highway 25 will open by May 31.

When complete, the project will stabilize the roadway and improve the efficiency of the local transportation system by reducing the risk of flooding and flood damage on Highway 25, according to MnDOT.

UPDATED 4-21-14 corrected Carver County Road 30 to Wright County Road 30.
