Minnesota Boulevard in St. Cloud Opening Friday
ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- Minnesota's shortest highway will reopen to traffic Friday following a five-month reconstruction project.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation says Highway 301 in St. Cloud, also known as Minnesota Boulevard, will open by 3:00 p.m.
The closure between 15th Avenue Southeast/Sherburne County Road 8 and Highway 10 was necessary while crews updated underground storm sewers, roadside drainage, and resurfaced the roadway.
MnDOT says the $4-million project also included the restoration of the historic retaining wall along the north side of the highway at the St. Cloud prison.
