Temporary four-way stop planned for construction at Hwy 19-Hwy 20 in Cannon Falls begins April 4

CANNON FALLS, Minn. — Motorists in Cannon Falls will experience traffic delays downtown beginning April 4 when construction crews remove the traffic signals and replace with a temporary four-way stop at Main and Fourth streets (Hwys 19 and 20), according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The signal replacement is part of the repaving construction project that begins in Cannon Falls in April. Stop signs at the intersection will direct vehicles at each approach to stop and then proceed when it is safe. Traffic backups are likely, especially during the peak travel times in the morning and afternoon.

Other construction work will begin to the east of the intersection. Motorists may find lane restrictions or short-term delays when traveling through the work zone.

Background

  • Repave Hwy 19 from 5th St. S to Almond St. in Cannon Falls
