Downtown Highway 41 Project


Construction begins March 27, weather permitting

This week, crews began making preparations for the full closure of the Highway 61/Walnut Street intersection. Crews set up a westbound lane closure along Hwy 61 from Walnut St to Yellow Brick Rd to begin ground warming in preparation for work beginning Monday.

On Monday, March 27, crews will close the Highway 61/Walnut St intersection. During this closure, the Hwy 41 intersection will remain open. Traffic will be detoured via Hwy 41, Engler Blvd, and Audubon Road. Please note that access to businesses within the closure area will be maintained from east of the Hwy 61/Walnut St intersection. This closure is expected to last about three to four weeks, weather permitting.

Check out the Stage 1 closure and detour maps for more information. Be sure to check out the full construction schedule.
