CSAH 30 to close due to pipeline repair

Pipeline repair will cause the temporary closure of County State Aid Highway 30 in Staples beginning Oct. 14, County Highway Engineer Joel Ulring informed the county board.

Koch Pipeline Co. did some evaluations of older pipelines and the 18 inch pipeline that crosses underneath CSAH 30 near the airport was one of the areas they need to open cut and repair, Ulring said. The work will begin Wednesday evening Oct. 14 and is expected to be complete by Monday morning Oct. 19.

"They're going to work 24/7 to get the project done," he said.

There will be detours for light traffic and truck traffic.

MEA weekend was chosen so the closure would have less of an impact on the schools, Ulring said.
