Highway 52 bridge project at Willow Creek and Olmsted County Road 1 complete


ROCHESTER, Minn. – All lanes of Highway 52 at Willow Creek and Olmsted County Road 1 are now open to traffic, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The northbound lanes were closed since April while crews rehabilitated the bridge over Willow Creek and resurfaced the bridge deck at Olmsted County Road 1. Traffic was moved to the southbound lanes and reduced to a single lane in each direction.

MnDOT thanks motorists for their patience during this nine-week project.

Minnowa Construction, Inc., is the prime contractor for this construction project.

MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
