State resumes construction on U.S. Highway 12 between Willmar, Pennock

WILLMAR –– The second phase of a road maintenance project begins Wednesday on U.S. Highway 12 between Willmar and Pennock.

Motorists will encounter lane restrictions and should expect delays on the road segment where crews are working, the Minnesota Department of Transportation said in a news release.

During the paving project, which is being done to extend the life of the road surface, flaggers will direct traffic through the work zone.

Drivers are urged to slow down and be alert for crews and equipment in this moving work zone.

Work is expected to be completed by late August, weather permitting.
