October 18 Update:
We know people are eager for the roundabout to open at Fenning Ave. and School Blvd. Here is the most recent project update from Wright County. Thank you for your patience as this important project gets completed!
September 2 Update:
Wright County’s road improvement project along Fenning Ave. in Monticello continues as the contractor works towards the completion of the roundabout. The east and west legs were delayed due to recent rain days, but the contractor is working to have the roundabout open in the east-west direction for the first day of school on September 7. If the roundabout is not complete, school traffic will need to follow a detour. Please adhere to the detour routes posted and give yourself extra time when commuting.
Once the east and west legs are done, the contractor will remove the bypass lane and begin construction on the north leg of the roundabout. Then, a new detour will be in place utilizing Chelsea Rd. and Edmonson Ave.
July 29 Update:
More changes are coming along Fenning Avenue! Construction of the roundabout at Fenning Ave. and School Blvd. begins Monday, August 2! The intersection will be closed to through traffic, except for the north to east leg and vice versa. The roundabout is set to be completed by the end of August.
A temporary bypass lane has been built to maintain traffic for westbound to northbound and southbound to eastbound traffic. A detour will be posted to access School Blvd. and will follow Chelsea Road to Edmonson Ave.
