Notes

  • Historically, U.S. 52 was routed along University Avenue between Minneapolis and St. Paul in Minnesota. In the 1980s and 1990s, the highway was gradually shifted onto its present route along Interstate 94, although for a few years up until about 1995, there was effectively a gap in the roadway as the precise route wasn't defined. Since then, it has been routed along the interstate between the Twin Cities, though as of 2005, there was still a sign on University Avenue as you enter Hennepin County saying "{52}, follow (County Highways) 36/ and 37/", which keeps you on University, then onto 4th St for historic westbound US-52. Historic US-52 westbound then went over the Central Avenue bridge (current Minnesota State Highway 65) and turned onto the current routing of County Highway 81 northwest to Osseo. It then followed the current route of U.S. Highway 169 north to Anoka.
  • In Rochester, Minnesota, US 52 is being expanded to six lanes. Long term plans have US 52 from St. Paul to I-90 be freeway, and some have suggested that when the conversion is complete, that the freeway become a spur route for I-90. Currently I-90 has no spur routes in Minnesota. Also, US 52's route through Rochester has exit numbers, so far the only non-Interstate in Minnesota to have them.
