Date change: Hwy 212/284/County road 53 turn lanes closing Sept. 13

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists in Cologne will encounter closures of the right turn lane from Hwy 284 and County Road 53 to Hwy 212 beginning on Thursday, Sept. 13.

The closures are necessary as crews continue construction of the new Reduced Conflict Intersection to replace the existing standard intersection.

Motorist will follow a signed detour using County Road 36 and Village Parkway to bypass the closure.

The project is scheduled to be complete by October 2012.

Reduced Conflict Intersections have been proven to increase safety while maintaining all movements at an intersection.
