Hwy 52, Oronoco to Pine Island


About this project

This project constructs a new interchange and frontage roads between the CR 11 (Pine Island) interchange and Oronoco. The realignment of CR 12 is part of this interchange and an integral piece of the Hwy 52 freeway upgrade.

Hwy 52 connects two regional trade centers — the Twin Cities Metro Area and the city of Rochester.

Hwy 52 has also been designated as a Toward Zero Deaths Corridor.


Safety and mobility on Hwy 52 will be improved by removing turning movements from 18 access points, including 520th Street at Pine Island and Olmsted CR 31.
