Here is what is happening:
Three projects are occurring on Highway 12 starting in 2021. The three projects are:
- Highway 12 center concrete barrier project (MnDOT is leading construction and communications)
- County Road 90 at Highway 12 roundabout project (MnDOT is leading construction and communications)
- County Road 92 safety improvements project at Highway 12 (Hennepin County is leading construction and communications)
Highway 12 barrier and County Road 90 roundabout
The Highway 12 center concrete barrier and County Road 90 roundabout projects will begin first. The projects are scheduled to begin in May and are expected to run through September. During this project, Highway 12 will close to through traffic between Hennepin County Road 6 and County Road 92. People will be able to reach homes and businesses. Attached are a detour map and three facts sheets for your use.
