Elk River to Close School Street for One Week

School Street will be fully closed between Proctor Avenue and Jackson Street starting Monday, May 11, and reopening to motorists by Sunday, May 17.

This closure is necessary to accommodate utility work beneath School Street in preparation of Elk River High School’s (ERHS) parking lot reconstruction project, which includes the relocation of the traffic signal at Lions Park Drive west of its current location.

Detour signs will be placed rerouting people to use Highland Road to get between Proctor and Jackson.
Entry to the apartment buildings and churches located along School Street will remain accessible during the closure.

Anyone needing to visit ERHS is asked to use the northeast lot (bus lot) with the entrance on Jackson.
