Hammer Road in Albert Lea open to traffic

Published 3:45 pm Thursday, August 4, 2022

Hammer Road in Albert Lea, between Y.H. Hanson Avenue and Sorensen Road (Freeborn County Road 45), is back open to through traffic.

The contractor has replaced three culverts and patched the road enough that drivers can use it until next week, when final paving will occur, weather permitting.

The goal is for the project to be completed by Aug. 17, when Albert Lea Area Schools resume classes.
