‘I Don’t Get It’ Episode 5: Highway-52 Construction Projects
When it comes to life here in southeastern Minnesota, there are just a few things I don’t “get.” Like why there are so many construction projects scheduled for this summer on Highway-52.
I get that construction projects are a fact of life, but it’s all the various projects scheduled for U.S. Highway-52 THIS YEAR that I don’t get.
MnDOT really appears bent on proving that old adage about there being two seasons in Minnesota– winter and road construction– true this year, with what looks to be four separate projects set to disrupt traffic between Rochester and Twin Cities.
There’s the Highway-58 bridge replacement in Zumbrota, the repaving of the northbound lanes between Rochester and Cannon Falls, another bridge replacement near Cannon Falls, and, last but not least, the Highway-42 bridge replacement in Rosemount. (Although, to be fair, that one is a Dakota Country project, not MnDOT, but still.)
Do we really have to schedule them all for the same year?!? I don’t get it!
