Highway 12 detour in Willmar to be lifted at noon Friday

The detour along U.S. Highway 12 in Willmar will be lifted at noon Friday.

The construction crews are putting the finishing touches on the project Thursday.

The project began on June 3 and extended from from the railroad bridge overpass near 11th Street Southwest to 7th Street Southwest and from Dolson Street Southeast to 6th Street Southeast.

By replacing the highway's joint sealer and repairing its aging concrete panels, the project aimed to extend the life of the roadway.
