2022 construction summary and 2023 planned work

The 2022 construction season wrapped in mid-November, and with that comes an opportunity to give a summary of all the work that was completed. This construction summary is presented in visual format through a series of maps so that it is easy to see where the work was completed. In addition to an overview of 2022 construction, there is also an overview of 2023 construction.

Hwy 52 southbound lanes south of Cannon Falls reopen to traffic for winter season

The newly reconstructed southbound Hwy 52 lanes south of Cannon Falls and the southbound ramps at the new Hwy 57 interchange reopened to traffic on Nov. 15. In the morning, MnDOT snowplows cleared the southbound lanes in preparation of the opening. A short time later, vehicles were on the new lanes.

The Hwy 52 Zumbrota to Cannon Falls project construction season is wrapping up for the year. It will begin again in April to complete the project in November 2023. A lane closure on northbound Hwy 52 remains in place until striping and other work is completed in the coming days. The lanes on southbound Hwy 52 will have lane closures as crews wrap up the tasks related to opening the road.

In 2022, crews reconstructed 6.5 miles of southbound Hwy 52 this year and built a new interchange at Hwy 57/Goodhue County Road 8. A bridge on southbound Hwy 52 at Hwy 60 east was replaced earlier this season as well.

The northbound exit and entrance ramps of the interchange and Hwy 57/County Road 8 opened Nov. 4.
