UPDATE: Hwy 8 Road Closure

MN Dot is adding signage coming from the west at HWY 8 and 95 and on HWY 8 coming from the east to let people know Taylors Falls is still open for business. The signs will remain in place until mid-May, when they’ll be changed to reflect the new detour routes.

Starting April 20, MN Dot will close off parking on both sides of Bench street in front of Chisago House and Rocky River Bakery. This is part of the planned construction. The handicapped parking in the southbound lane will remain open.


Motorists are advised to follow the posted detour through Osceola using Highway 95, Highway 243 and Wisconsin Highway 35.

Local residents and Wildwood Campground visitors can continue to access the area from the west end of the Highway 8 closure. Access to Interstate Park is provided from the east end of the Highway 8 closure.

Our communities share not only a Chamber of Commerce and a strong sense of community, but the beautiful St. Croix River, a National Park in our front yards. The area offers many opportunities for those visiting or choosing to call this unique place home. With the charm of two small cities we are proud of our dedication to the arts, tourism, small and large businesses and a high quality of life, which includes superior education, health care, recreation, and technology.
