Hwy 12 Closing for Median Barrier Construction

Posted on October 6th, 2016 under Talk of the Town.

MnDOT has confirmed that Highway 12 (focusing on the area known locally as “the bypass”) will be closing for median barrier installation beginning October 17 for approximately three weeks.

The highway will close between County Road 112 and County Road 6. This will be a full closure (day & night). Traffic will be detoured onto County Road 112 through Long Lake and Orono during the closure.

Motorists should expect delays and plan on extra time when traveling through the area. Residents/businesses in Long Lake and Orono should expect heavier volumes of traffic in their area and use extra caution when traveling on County Road 112.
The median barrier will improve safety on Highway 12 by preventing crossover crashes.
