Road block

Travel on Minnesota Highway 55 was obstructed for nearly two hours Monday morning and afternoon after a semi hauling an oversized load attempted to make a u-turn from the frontage road onto the highway. The trailer was unable to clear the crest in the highway. Civilians directed traffic until officers from the Wright County Sheriff’s Office and Minnesota State Patrol arrived to reroute traffic from the highway between Oak Avenue and Wright County Road 8. An asphalt truck attempted three times to pull the truck out of the intersection, but was unsuccessful. Eventually, the trailer was elevated, allowing the truck to be removed by a tow truck.
