About this project

Hwy 52 is a high speed road from Coates to Cannon Falls. Some areas within this region have experienced several crashes with many of them being right angle crashes which historically cause the most severe injuries.

To reduce the risk of this type of crash, MnDOT Metro District removed median openings and installed Reduced Conflict Intersections (RCI).

Summary of work

  • Modified accesses between Co Rd. 46 and Co. Rd. 86
  • Closed Hwy 52 cross-median access at Donnely Ave.
  • Constructed RCI's at Goodwin Ave., Fischer Ave., 250th St., 215th St., 210th St., 190th St., Donnelly Ave. and 180th St.
  • Added a cable median barrier
