Highway 52 lane restrictions in Rochester begin June 5

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Highway 52 southbound will be reduced to one lane between 55th Street Northwest and 75th Street Northwest Wednesday, June 5, and Highway 52 northbound will be reduced to one lane Thursday, June 6.

The closures are necessary as crews install barriers for the construction of auxiliary lanes on Highway 52 as part of the 65th Street interchange project.

Once the barriers are installed, Highway 52 will be reduced to two lanes in both directions between 55th Street Northwest and 75th Street Northwest during the construction of the auxiliary lanes, scheduled to be completed in mid-October, weather permitting.

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