Approximately 18 trees will be cut down and removed beginning Monday, March 28 along Highway 19 in Cannon Falls as construction crews prepare to start work on April 1.
According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, there will be brief traffic delays as crews remove trees and utilize the street with equipment. Flaggers will briefly stop traffic during these removal efforts.
Most of the trees are along the boulevard on the left side of the road for eastbound travelers on Hwy 19 in Cannon Falls between Mill Street and Oak Street. This work is expected to complete by the end of the month. Construction is scheduled to begin April 1 and be completed by July 30.
Work scheduled to be completed includes repaving Hwy 19 from 5th St. S to Almond St. in Cannon Falls, altering pedestrian bump outs, improving truck turning, and replacing traffic signals at Hwy 19 and Hwy 20 intersection.
