ROCHESTER, Minn. - Starting June of this year, construction in downtown Rochester may cause some inconveniences in your daily commute, but it's for good reason.

Fourth St. SW was constructed over 100 years ago and is finally getting its much-needed reconstruction.

Right now, the street has 4 lanes. By the end of October the street will have one lane going both ways, extra parking on one side of the street, and even a covered bike lane.

There will also be shorter crosswalks and wider sidewalks for pedestrian safety which is what the city engineer tells KIMT this whole project is all about.
