The remaining Highway 212 construction near Montevideo will be complete next week and the road will open by Sept. 14, weather permitting.

Duininck Inc. is the prime contractor for the projects, which began in May. Work included grading, paving the road, installing pedestrian accessible ramps and improving traffic signals.

The centerline rumble stripes were a late addition to the project and will enhance motorist safety, MnDOT said.
