4th Street SE Project Will Have Major Travel Impacts on Rochester Motorists
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - Work is scheduled to begin Wednesday on a road project that city officials say will have major travel impacts on a busy street in southeast Rochester.
The City Public Works Department says traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction on 4th Street Southeast from Broadway east to 11th Avenue Southeast while crews replace some sanitary manholes and perform spot repairs to the pavement and curbs. The sanitary manhole replacements are currently scheduled for this Thursday and Friday. Officials say motorists are advised to avoid the segment of 4th Street between 3rd Avenue and Broadway on both days because lengthy delays will occur while construction trucks are periodically parked in the travel lane.
The Canadian Pacific Railroad will also be replacing the rail crossing near the Zumbro River Bridge. That work is expected to begin next month and take about two weeks to complete. While the railroad work is ongoing, 4th Street will be completely closed to thru traffic in that area.
The entire project is expected to be completed sometime in June.
