Highway 52 ramp closure in Rochester Aug. 29

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Motorists will encounter a ramp closure at the southbound Highway 52 to westbound Olmsted County Road 22 exit ramp Thursday, Aug. 29, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The ramp will close beginning at 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

The closure is part of the Highway 14 bridge replacement project, and is necessary as crews pave the westbound lanes of Olmsted County Road 22.

Ames Construction is the prime contractor for the bridge replacement project, expected to be completed late September, 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.
