Fenning Avenue/School Boulevard Roundabout Construction Starts Monday

A Message from the Wright County Highway Department

The Wright County Highway Department has announced a project update for the County Highway 118 project in Monticello. The contractor is making significant progress on County Highway 118, completing the majority of the grading and roadway construction from CSAH 37 to 85th Street. Crews have placed storm sewers and sub-grade and has begun placing the retaining wall on the east side of the roadway near the City Park. Starting Monday, Aug. 2, construction will begin on the roundabout at Fenning Avenue (Hwy. 118/18) and School Boulevard.

The Fenning Avenue/School Boulevard intersection area will be closed to thru traffic with the exception of the north leg and the east leg. A temporary bypass lane has been built in order to allow traffic to be maintained for the westbound-to-northbound and southbound-to-eastbound maneuver.

Traffic will follow a posted detour to access School Boulevard. The detour will follow Chelsea Road to Edmonson Avenue. The detour for the southern portion of the project will also be left in place.

The bypass lane and the detour will allow the contractor to build the roundabout more quickly. It is anticipated the roundabout will be completed by the end of August.
