Lane closures on Hwy 52 between Preston and Harmony begin June 18 for resurfacing project
PRESTON, Minn. – Highway 52 motorists between Preston and Harmony in Fillmore County will encounter lane closures beginning Monday, June 18 as crews resurface the roadway, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Motorists will be stopped by flaggers who will ensure groups of vehicles safely move one direction through the construction zone while the other direction of traffic is stopped. Groups of traffic will take turns using the single open lane while being directed by flaggers. Short waits are possible.
This project will replace aging pavement from the Highway 16 junction south of Preston to Fillmore County Road 22 north of Harmony.
Dunn Blacktop Company, Winona, Minn., is the prime contractor on this $1.8 million project. Work is scheduled to be complete in July.

MnDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
