Roadwork in preparation for a diverging-diamond interchange near Epic Center in Sartell continues to cause major traffic backups and detours in that area, especially on Hwy. 15.
Earlier this week, there was only one lane open north and south on Hwy. 15 for part of an evening. On Wednesday, work began on the second roundabout on CR 120. That intersection at 134 has been closed indefinitely for more work.
Motorists should be patient as they follow detours.
The diverging-diamond interchange, which will be the first in the state, is an ambitious project that is likely to cause even more disruptions in the next year or so near Epic Center. A divergent-diamond interchange is one at which left-turning vehicles will not encounter oncoming traffic.
