ST. CLOUD - A major road construction project starting Monday will detour traffic around Holdingford for the next several weeks.

Work on Stearns County Highway 9 will prompt a detour via County Highway 52 to County Highway 3 to County Highway 17. Signs will be posted.

The road will be closed starting Monday and lasting until mid-October. The work will take place between Highway 52 and Highway 17.

Local access will be maintained for businesses and residents, but all other traffic will be required to use the detour.
