The first detour of Highway 52 near Chatfield, Minn. was lifted Monday, May 13, as crews finished the first stage of culvert replacement, but motorists can expect delays as crews do paving work along the highway to Marion, Minn.
With the first stage complete, motorists can again drive on Highway 52 from Chatfield to Marion near Interstate 90. Paving work will be occurring, so there will be flaggers stopping traffic for short periods to allow traffic in both directions to be able to take turns in the open lane that’s not being paved at the time.
A second detour started Monday, June 10. Traffic will be detoured until Aug. 6 to replace the three box culverts between Olmsted County Road 16 and Olmsted County Road 7 north. Traffic will detoured from Highway 52 to Olmsted County Road 7 to I-90. Remaining work will be done under traffic. Work in the Chatfield city limits does not require a traffic detour.
