About this project

Hwy 19 construction project map

The purpose of this project is to address deteriorating pavement conditions on Hwy 19 in Cannon Falls, improve pedestrian and vehicle safety and meet the current Americans with Disabilities (ADA) standards.

Proposed work

  • Repave Hwy 19 to Almond St.
  • Install bumpouts at the intersection of Hwy 19 and Hwy 20
  • Improve truck turning at the intersection of Hwy 19 and Hwy 20
  • Replace traffic signal at the intersection of Hwy 19 and Hwy 20
  • Construct new sidewalks to meet Americans with Disabilities (ADA) standards

Details can be viewed on the project layout map.

Many of the proposed changes to the sidewalks within the project area are because of the need to meet ADA regulations.  In some places, the steep terrain creates many challenges in complying with those regulations and has resulted in some significant changes, including the consideration of constructing new sidewalks along 1st St. and State St. Please visit the Design Concepts tab for additional details and information about ADA standards and how they influenced the selection of certain design features.
