Hwy 212 in Renville experiencing minor delays


WILLMAR, Minn. – Motorists in Renville may encounter delays on Hwy 212 as Minnesota Department of Transportation crews patch a hole that developed along the shoulder near Second Street.


The highway will remain open during repairs with flaggers used to help maintain safety.  A pipe separation beneath the road surface caused the collapse.
