All lanes of Highway 12 will reopen by 6 a.m. the following day.

The work began Monday and flaggers and a pilot car will control traffic through the daily work zone. Motorists should slow down and prepare to stop as they approach each work zone, and must obey flaggers and use caution as they follow the pilot car through the daily work zone.

The closures are needed as crews resurface the road. The initial work, a leveling course, will be applied to the pavement in 2013. Crews will return in spring 2014 to complete the work.
