Area drivers and commuters should be prepared for closures in both directions on Wright County Highway 19, named LaBeaux Avenue in Albertville, under the Interstate 94 bridge starting Wednesday, Aug. 5.
The closure will take place as crews safely demolish the old I-94 bridge over County 19.
Crews will close the northbound side of the road beginning Wednesday, Aug. 5, at the I-94 bridge through Fri, Aug. 7. Southbound County 19 will close nightly from 8 p.m. to 10 a.m. Here are the detours for the road closure:
Northbound Co. Rd. 19 Detour: Northbound Co. Rd. 19 to Co. Rd. 37 to the westbound I-94 local access road to Co. Rd. 19
Southbound Co. Rd. 19 Detour: Southbound Co. Rd. 19 to westbound I-94 to Co. Rd. 18/Fenning Ave. to eastbound I-94 to Co. Rd. 19
This detour adds 13 miles round trip. Please plan ahead and give yourself additional time.
In addition, Wright County has been working on reconstructing County Road 19 and County Road 38 in Albertville. On Monday, Aug. 3, County Road 19 closed in both directions between Lamplight Drive and 70th Street.
Northbound traffic will detour to Co. Rd. 37 to Maciver Avenue Northeast to County Road 38 to County Road 19. Southbound traffic will detour to County Road 38 to Maciver Avenue Northeast to County Road 37 to County Road 19. The detour will be in place for approximately eight weeks.
