Highway 52 median to close

Starting Aug. 5, motorists will no longer be able to use the Highway 52 median to access 520th and 135th streets east of Pine Island, the Minnesota Department of Transportation said.

The Highway 52 southbound detour to access 520th Street is exit 68 on the new Elk Run interchange; the Highway 52 northbound detour to access 135th Street is County Road 11. Right-in, right-out turns will still be allowed.

The median closure is for crews to begin culvert work on Highway 52, MnDOT said. Motorists can expect lane closures in the area through mid-August.
