County Highway 17 Closure, City of Delano Flood Control Project

County Highway 17 (River Street), just north of US Highway 12 Overpass, will be closed starting today, November 4, 2019 to install sheet piling along a short segment of river shoreline. The project will serve two purposes:

1: It will stabilize the segment of shoreline that is failing.

2. It will provide additional flood protection.

The work will be completed by Redstone Construction and will require a detour utilizing 7th Street and Railroad Avenue. It is anticipated that this location will be closed to traffic for two (2) to three (3) weeks, depending on weather conditions.

Please follow the posted detour signing and allow yourself additional time in safely reaching your destination. Please see the map below that shows the location of the highway closure and detour.


If you have any questions or would like additional information on this important safety project, please call 763-682-7383 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday.

We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding while this project is being completed.
