Hwy 12 overnight closures occur Aug. 27-29
Resurfacing project continues


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will experience delays and detours on both directions of Hwy 12 between Hennepin County Road 90 and Hennepin County Road 6 in Maple Plain  as overnight full closures for resurfacing occur Aug. 27-29.


The closures will begin daily at 7 p.m., and reopen by 5 a.m. the next day. Motorists will be directed to use Hennepin County Road 90 and Hennepin County Road 6 to bypass the closure. Access for local residents and businesses in Maple Plain will be maintained.


Crews will begin resurfacing work at the west end of the project area and move east. Area residents should be aware of additional overnight noise in the area during this work. The work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled in the case of inclement weather.


Overnight closures are also anticipated to occur the week of Sept. 3 for final resurfacing in the area. Updates will be made in advance of the 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.
