MnDOT sets public information meeting on Hwy 52 Cannon Falls interchange

ROCHESTER, Minn. – The public is invited to attend a public information meeting Friday, April 22 in Cannon Falls to learn more about a 10-day project that will correct curbing on the Highway 52 east side interchange roundabout, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The meeting is from 10 a.m.-11 a.m., Friday in the Cannon Falls city council chambers, 918 River Road in Cannon Falls. MnDOT officials will be on hand to discuss the project and explain the timelines and detour routes.

On Monday, April 25, the Highway 52 northbound on and off ramp at Goodhue County Road 24 will be closed while the curb on the interchange roundabout is corrected. Work is expected to be completed by Tuesday, May 3, weather permitting.

Detour signs will direct motorists.

Workers will be adjusting the slope of the gutter and height of the curb. Goodhue County Road 24 will be closed between the east frontage road and the west interchange ramps.

Northbound and southbound motorists on Highway 52 traveling to the east side of Highway 52 in Cannon Falls will use the Highway 19 exit and travel east into town.

Northbound motorists traveling to the west side of Highway 52 in Cannon Falls should proceed north to the Highway 19 exit and then return to southbound Highway 52 to exit at Goodhue County Road 24. The west interchange ramps will remain open during the project

The detour for motorists on the west side of Highway 52 who want to travel north on Highway 52 from Goodhue County Road 24 is to exit south onto Highway 52 and go to the Goodhue County Road 9 interchange, exit and return to Highway 52 north via the interchange.

MnDOT urges motorists to follow these recommendations in work zones: Stay alert, watch for signs, equipment and workers, minimize distractions, such as using cell phones, eating or drinking, avoid tailgating, follow posted speed limits and directional signs, and stay in one lane while driving through a work zone
