Overnight Highway 52 Lane Closures In Rochester Start Next Week
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - Highway 52 motorists will notice overnight lane closures starting Monday in Rochester for bridge cleaning.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation said work will take place from 8 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. on May 22, May 24, and May 25. During the work, sand and other material that accumulated during winter are swept up before crews use fresh water in high-pressure pumps to spray down the gutter lines and joints.
Motorists can expect periodic traffic delays with lane closures. Flaggers directing traffic will be in some of the areas and there will be short-term ramp closures in the Civic Center Drive area.
The three MnDOT bridge maintenance crews of southeast Minnesota have flushed approximately 428 bridges and two historic culverts during this spring.
