Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A section of a downtown Rochester street is scheduled to close Monday.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that it is scheduled to be a one day closure.

The stretch of East Center St between Broadway and 1st Ave SE/NE will be completely closed so RPU can do electrical utility work as part of the Hilton hotel project that is under construction. Motorists and pedestrians will be affected.  

According to the city, the suggested detour route is to turn north at Civic Center Drive NE from East Center Street. Motorists will be encouraged to detoured north on Civic Center Drive NE to where Civic Center Drive meets West Silver Lake Drive NE and then turn west on Civic Center Drive NE until they reach North Broadway Avenue, where they can turn south to get back to West Center Street.
