Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Look for some changes in the area of Rochester’s Essex Park this week.

The 55th St road project continues and enough progress has been made to open a new entrance to Essex Park from West River Rd. It will be located approximately 800 feet south of the West River Rd/55th Street intersection. The existing entrance will close.

The new entrance is scheduled to open on Wednesday.

Because of the ongoing work, access to the park entrance will come from 41st Street for motorists traveling north or 75th Street for those traveling south.
