Hwy 19 repaving

Cannon Falls


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.

Weather permitting, construction will begin April 11, 2022 and end in late July.

Planned work

  • Repave Hwy 19 from 5th St. S to Almond St.
  • Altering pedestrian 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 planned 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 construction of 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.

Traffic impacts

  • Lane closures
  • Flagging operations
  • A detour will not be used
