Change in traffic on Highway 52

Body: 

Highway 52 traffic at Cannon Falls will change over Aug. 4 near the Little Cannon River as crews prepare to replace the second bridge in the project, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Traffic will be switched. Northbound motorists will travel in a single lane in the southbound lanes through the construction zone, while southbound motorists will remain in a single lane. Both directions will use the new southbound bridge while crews begin to replace the northbound bridge.

The Highway 52 replacements at Cannon Falls are between the interchanges for Goodhue County Road 24 and Highway 19.

Work is expected to be completed in October.
