Hornsby Street - Eureka Avenue Road Closure

In conjunction with MnDOT’s I-35 Design/Build Project and work on Trunk Highway 97, and the upcoming (2019) Hornsby Street Realignment project, the City of Columbus closed Hornsby Street from TH-97 to the Columbus/Forest Lake city border on May 21, 2018.  The road will remained closed until the completion of the aforementioned projects which are anticipated to be finished by late fall/early winter of 2019.  Access from the north on Eureka Avenue will remain open past the boat landing all the way to the Columbus/Forest Lake city border, where an existing driveway is located should vehicles venture that far and need to make a T turn-around.  Please refer to the attached Hornsby Street Exhibit for the location of the proposed road signage for the closure.

MnDOT Traffic & Road Conditions Information

Use caution and drive safely. If possible, use alternate routes. Remember, as you travel through a work zone reduce your speed, adjust your lane position away from workers, and prepare for the unexpected. Allow extra time for your trip or, if possible, use an alternate route. Projects may cause some inconvenience, but the benefits will be a safer and more efficient roadway system. Watch for road signs and articles in local newspapers to keep you informed. Your patience and cooperation is sincerely appreciated.
