According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, crews will start replacing four culverts along the highway between Plainview and Highway 63. MnDOT says the highway closure and detour will last approximately two months while crews dig out the old culverts under the highway and replace them.


Businesses and residents will still be able to access their properties during the work, and there will be repairs of other culverts on Highway 247. The repair of one culvert is also scheduled on Highway 63 near Wabasha County Road 7, which may require short traffic delays, but no detour.

The Detour

Motorists traveling west from Plainview will turn south on Wabasha County Road 2 and then west on Wabasha County Road 25, which turns into Olmsted County Road 21. Motorists will then turn north on Olmsted County Road 11, which connects back with Highway 247 west of Potsdam. Eastbound traffic detour is the reverse route.
