Highway 52 median cable guardrail installation complete


ROCHESTER, Minn. – Motorists can now drive on all lanes of southbound Highway 52 between Olmsted County Road 14 and Olmsted County Road 12, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Southbound Highway 52 had been reduced to one lane while crews installed median cable guardrail.

The median cable guardrail will help prevent head-on collisions, making Highway 52 safer.

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

The resurfacing project began Sept. 6. H&R Construction Company was the prime contractor for the construction project.
