Nighttime Highway 52 Lane Closures Planned in Rochester Beginning May 9 for Bridge Cleaning
Highway 52 motorists in Rochester will notice overnight lane closures during the week of May 9th as crews clean bridges.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation said work will take place from 8 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. for four nights, May 9th and May 11th to May 13th. During that 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.

The work includes bridges over Hwy 52 – 55th Street Northwest, 41st Street Northwest, 37th Street Northwest, 19th Street Northwest, 2nd Street Southwest, and 6th Street Southwest, Highway 14 east and 16th Street Southwest so there will be lane restrictions on these roadways over Highway 52 as well.
