ROCHESTER, Minn. — Second Street Southwest, the road that bisects the downtown portion of Mayo Clinic's Rochester campus, will be under construction for a city of Rochester project from Monday, April 5, through Friday, Oct. 15. The construction zone extends from First Avenue Southwest westward to Sixth Avenue Southwest. Access to Saint Marys Hospital is unaffected.
During construction, one lane of Second Street Southwest will be open each way from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. From 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., all lanes will be closed. Those traveling on Second Street Southwest should expect significant delays.
