Open house April 30 in Chatfield for Hwy 52 paving project

CHATFIELD, Minn. – The public is invited to an open house on Tuesday, April 30 in Chatfield to talk with the contractor and the Minnesota Department of Transportation to learn about the construction planned for Highway 52 from Marion through Chatfield that begins May 6, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Representatives of MnDOT will be available to answer questions and provide information from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Chatfield City Hall city council chambers, 21 Second St. SE in Chatfield.

Rochester Sand & Gravel, a MnDOT contractor, will be repaving, replacing culverts and making improvements along Highway 52 from Marion through Chatfield beginning May 6. In Chatfield, crews will make sidewalk and pedestrian ramp accessibility improvements and replace traffic signals. There will be detours at for two stages of the project while culverts are replaced along the road. Both detours will reroute traffic off of Highway 52 between Chatfield and Marion for approximately three months.

During the April 30 open house, people may drop by at any time during the session to learn more about the project, offer feedback, and ask questions. Maps and information will be available for review.
