4th of July Construction Work Zones

With July 4 falling on a long weekend and holiday celebrations throughout the state, the Minnesota Department of Transportation urges Independence Day weekend travelers to plan ahead, expect delays and enjoy a safe, steady pace by driving the speed limit – particularly while driving through work zones.


More than 200 projects will be underway on state roads this construction season. While most work will be suspended over the July 4 holiday, work zones will remain in place for many projects.



Motorists should also be aware that the fine for speeding in a work zone is $300.

Some of the highway projects in SE Minnesota likely to affect weekend travel include:


· Highway 52 Zumbrota to Cannon Falls – Reduced to single lane in each direction, lane closures, lane shifts, reduced speed limit; southbound exits within work zone can be accessed at Goodhue County Road 1.


· Highway 60 east to Zumbro Falls – Detour. Closed between Highway 52 and Highway 63; access detour at Highway 58 in Zumbrota.


· Highway 43 at Highway 61 in Winona – Lane closures and traffic congestion through work zone.


· MnDOT recommends that motorists check 511mn.org and plan their routes before they go.
