Orange barrels on a highway

Hwy 212 resurfacing begins August 5

Motorists should expect delays from Glencoe to Hwy 5

Willmar, Minn. – Westbound motorists traveling on Hwy 212 from Glencoe to the junction with Hwy 5 can expect delays beginning Aug. 5 as crews begin building crossovers in the median in preparation for resurfacing that portion of the roadway.

Traffic will be shifted to the eastbound lanes on August 8, weather permitting, resulting in a single lane of traffic in each direction.   Motorists should enter the work zone with caution and expect brief delays until the project is complete in late September.

Knife River Corporation North Central of Sauk Rapids is the contractor on this mill and overlay project. The nearly $3. 4 million project will provide a smoother ride for motorists when completed.
