New Hwy 5 Detour Starts Today 03 Oct 13

A major road construction project on Highway 5 from Arlington to Green Isle continues, but the detour will reportedly be changing today (THU). The detour for heavy commercial traffic travelling Highway 5 will remain on Sibley County Roads 13 and 15, but all other motorists will now be detoured to Sibley County Roads 9 and 15. The nearly $5-million pavement replacement project includes replacing the culvert at the south edge of Green Isle and relocating it with a new channel and a mill and overlay. Knife River Corporation of Sauk Rapids is the contractor on the Highway 5 project, which is scheduled to be completed October 18th.
