West Metro Corridor to Open Start of November

ST. CLOUD — After a year of lane restrictions, road closures, and traffic jams, the West Metro Corridor project in northwest St. Cloud is nearing completion.

Stearns County Assistant Engineer Jodi Teich says the project should be completed the first week of November. But, she adds traffic lanes will be opened leading up to that date as the project allows.

A wetter than normal summer threatened the project’s completion date, but Teich says a dry September saved the project from spilling over into next year.  In fact, crews are pouring the final layer of concrete on the bridges today…just a day before the October 15th deadline.  Teich says that is the standard deadline for our climate to get concrete poured and cured properly.

The $17-million project was started last November and will provide improved traffic flow over the Sauk River with two bridges carrying traffic from Sartell and northwest St. Cloud into Waite Park and surrounding areas.

The project is being paid for with a combination of city, county, state and federal dollars.
