CANNON FALLS, Minn. – All lanes of Highway 19 west of Cannon Falls are expected to open to traffic on Friday, June 15 at 5 p.m. now that construction to rehabilitate a bridge over Prairie Creek is completed, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The bridge located about 3.5 miles west of Highway 52 has new pavement on the bridge deck, new guardrail and the bridge rail was repaired. Total cost of the project was $326,637.
