After several months of construction, the interchange at County Road 42 and Trunk Highway 52 in Rosemount is fully open. The construction project will help improve safety and provide additional space for traffic.
As part of the project, two bridges on Highway 52 were replaced and turn lanes were added to County Road 42 under the bridges. The four-lane divided section of County Road 42 was widened to east of Conley Avenue.
While Trunk Highway 52 remained open during most of the project, County Road 42 opened over the weekend. Message boards will be placed in the area announcing the opening. Some construction activity is expected in the area into the fall, but roads will remain open.
Construction started April 3, closing the interchange to motorists. The total bid for the project was $8.1 million. Ames Construction in Burnsville completed the project four weeks ahead of schedule.
