Hwy 52 traffic will change over Aug. 4 at Cannon Falls for next stage of bridge project

CANNON FALLS, Minn. – Highway 52 traffic at Cannon Falls will change over Aug. 4 near the Little Cannon River on as crews prepare to replace the second bridge in the project, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Traffic will be switched, so northbound motorists will travel in a single lane in the southbound lanes through the construction zone, while southbound motorists will remain in their lanes in a single lane. Both directions will use the new southbound bridge, while crews begin to replace the northbound bridge.

The Hwy 52 bridge replacements at Cannon Falls are between the interchanges for Goodhue County Road 24 and Highway 19. Lunda Construction is the prime contractor on the $3.5 million project. Work is expected to be completed in October.

Traffic delays are also likely in this work zone during high-traffic periods, such as weekends.
MnDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.

Motorists can find key information to plan ahead by reviewing MnDOT’s realtime road condition information at www.511mn.org or call 511. For information about the project, go to MnDOT’s project website: www.mndot.gov/d6/projects/hwy52-bridge-replacement/.
