Rochester Sand & Gravel will be repaving, replacing culverts and making improvements along Highway 52 from Marion through Chatfield in Fillmore County, starting Monday.

In Chatfield, crews will make sidewalk and pedestrian ramp accessibility improvements and replace traffic signals. There will be detours at  two stages of the project while culverts are replaced along the road. Both detours will reroute traffic off of Highway 52 between Chatfield and Marion.

On Monday, traffic will be detoured at Chatfield onto Olmsted County Road 10 to I-90. A centerline pipe is being replaced north of Olmsted County Road 136. It is expected to take about 10 days before traffic resumes on Highway 52 when the detour is lifted.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation project is expected to last over all until September.
