A Message from the Wright County Highway Department:
The City of Monticello has announced that the paving project on Hwy. 75/Broadway has been completed and the detour route was removed Wednesday afternoon. Excavation and grading for the Walnut Street parking lot will begin this morning (Nov. 2) and will take two days. During that period (Nov. 2-3) the parking lot will be closed. Walnut Street will be open to traffic and open to parking with the new configuration including the area in front of the park north of River Street. Broadway will also be available for parking. The Walnut Street parking lot will re-open Friday afternoon until some point next week when the curb and gutter work begins and the lot will again be closed. All parking lot work is expected to be completed by Friday, Nov. 17.
