Highway 52 traffic at Cannon Falls will be stopped in both directions for 15-minute periods early in the morning Saturday, Sept. 9, as crews place bridge beams, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
The work is expected to begin at 2 a.m. and be completed by 6 a.m. Four bridge beams will be placed during that time period. Traffic will need to be stopped for the beams to be transported to the site, then cranes can lift and lower the beams into place on the northbound bridge.
Minnesota State Patrol will stop traffic to allow equipment to get into place. Once the beam is moved, the equipment will clear the area and state troopers will lead traffic to resume through the work zone.
Traffic delays are likely during this time, especially during high-traffic periods like weekends.
Motorists can find key information to plan ahead by reviewing MnDOT's real time road condition
