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 is taking a proactive approach by removing median openings and installing Reduced Conflict Intersections (RCI).
This project is part of a "Fixing America's Surface Transporation Act" from 2015 that provided Minnesota with additional funds to spend on highway projects.
Before project work can begin, MnDOT is required by statute to have authorization from the state legislature before it can spend the extra funds. That authorization has not gone through as of January 2017. Therefore this project may be delayed.
