Update: Hwy 52 lane closures take place April 16


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists may experience delays on Hwy 52 near Vermillion as both directions of the roadway are reduced to a single lane Wednesday, April 16.

Beginning at 5 a.m. Wednesday, April 16, the right lane in both directions of Hwy 52 at County Road 66 will close as crews construct a Reduced Conflict Intersection (RCI).

In addition, access from County Road 66 to Hwy 52 will also close.  Motorists should follow the signed detour using County Roads 46 and 47 in order to bypass the closure.

Once complete, this $900,000 project will improve the safety of Hwy 52 at County Road 66 by eliminating motorists from crossing all four lanes of high-speed traffic and turning left across oncoming traffic.
