Highway 55 Construction DURING Rockford River Days



From Minnesota Department of Transportation

Hwy 55 Buffalo to Rockford: 2018 construction

Hwy 55 lanes in Rockford will change but be open for Rockford River Days

Dear Hwy 55 Buffalo to Rockford email subscriber,

With Rockford River Days festivities scheduled this weekend, we thought all of you River Days fans would appreciate an update on what to expect for traffic. Here’s your Rockford River Days traffic report.

Hwy 55 through Rockford (between the Crow River Bridge and Electric Avenue)

  • Wednesday, Aug. 8 through Friday, Aug. 10 afternoon – expect lane closures, flaggers, crews and heavy equipment while crews mill the roadway ahead of resurfacing.
  • Aug. 10 afternoon through 6 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13 – all lanes open for Rockford River Days. The road will be rough, so navigate with care whether by automobile, by bike, or by foot.
  • Monday, Aug. 13 – lane closures resume through the end of the project.

Hwy 55 between Electric Avenue in Rockford and Division Street in Buffalo

  • Closed to through traffic, local businesses and residences remain accessible, through the end of the project.

When will the detour end, you might ask? The answer: If everything goes well, the detour end within two weeks. As always, we’ll keep you updated through these emails the Hwy 55 project website as details become available.

Thank you for continuing to navigate the work zone with diligence, and for your patience while we complete this project.
