Hwy 12 resurfacing project begins Monday, July 9


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will experience delays on both directions of Hwy 12 between Boundary Avenue and just west of County Road 83/Halgren Road in Maple Plain  as a project to resurface the roadway and make additional improvements begins Monday, July 9.


Temporary, non-rush hour lane closures and traffic shifts will occur during approximately the first month of the project as crews work on minor resurfacing and curb and gutter replacement at the west end of the project, and reconstruct the intersection of Hwy 12 and Oak Street at the east end of the project. Flaggers may also stop traffic for brief periods of time during this work.


From approximately mid-August through mid-September, both directions of Hwy 12 will be resurfaced. The resurfacing work will occur at night between 7 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. A few overnight closures of Hwy 12 will occur during the resurfacing. Area residents should also be aware in advance of additional overnight noise in the area during this work. Updates will be made in advance of the overnight full closures.


The Hwy 12 Better Roads resurfacing project includes resurfacing Hwy 12 to preserve the lifespan of the roadway and create a smoother ride for motorists, adding left turn lanes west of County Road 83/Halgren Road to enhance safety, and reconstructing the intersection of Hwy 12/Oak Street to enhance motorist safety and upgrade accessibility for pedestrians. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by mid-September.
