Zumbrota, MN (KROC AM News) - Residents in Zumbrota who voted on three proposals for Highway 52 noise walls have apparently selected just one of the options.

MnDOT

The Minnesota Department of Transportation Friday announced the preliminary results of the noise wall voting process for the proposals. Residents and property owners who would benefit from the noise walls were eligible to vote on whether to build the walls.

The results:

  • Wall 1: Will NOT be installed
    % of voting points received = 60%
    Yes = 20%
    No = 40%
    This location is on the east side of Hwy 52 adjacent to the Hwy 60 west interchange in Zumbrota.
  • Wall 2: Will NOT be installed
    % of voting points received = 61.50%
    Yes = 24.14%
    No = 37.36%
    This location is on the east side of Hwy 52 between the Hwy 60 west interchange and the Hwy 58 interchange in
    Zumbrota.
  • Wall 3: Will be installed
    % of voting points received = 82.35%
    Yes = 82.35%
    No = 0%
    This location is on the east side of Hwy 52 south of the Hwy 58 interchange in Zumbrota.

MnDOT says the results will be considered final in the forthcoming Finding of Facts and Conclusions document for the Highway 52 Cannon Falls/ Zumbrota project.

It includes the section of Highway 52 from south of Cannon Falls to just north of Zumbrota.

MnDOT is also proposing to replace the east and west bridges at Highway 52 and Highway 60 in Zumbrota.

The intersection of Highway 57/Goodhue County Road 8 and Highway 52 in Hader has been designated for an interchange design.
