ZUMBROTA & CANNON FALLS, Minn. (KTTC) – Highway 52 construction completed last week between Zumbrota and Cannon Falls, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT).

Other improvements include, a new Highway 52 interchange at Highway 57 and Goodhue County Road 8, a noise wall in Zumbrota, Snow fencing between Goodhue County Road 1 and Goodhue County Road 50, a park-and-ride lot for Goodhue County at Goodhue County Road 8 at the new interchange, seven j-turns being built while closing 20 access points that were turned into connecting frontage roads.
Other structural changes included new bridges at Highway 52 over Highway 60 east, south of Zumbrota; Highway 60 west over Highway 52 at Zumbrota; and Highway 52 southbound over the Zumbro River north of Zumbrota.
The project cost $69.7 million.
