Highway 12 lane closures near Cokato, Delano through Saturday

ST. CLOUD — Motorists traveling U.S. Highway 12 between Delano and Cokato will encounter delays as segments of the road are reduced to a single lane beginning at 7 p.m. each evening through Saturday, the Minnesota Department of Transportation said in a news release.

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.
