Construction on Hwy. 12 in Cokato Set to Begin July 6

Those who travel Hwy. 12 through the City of Cokato will experience delays starting Monday, July 6 and running through October. Motorists should expect narrow lanes, lane shifts, flaggers and the use of pilot cars. Pedestrians should expect sidewalk closures and detours.

The project will include the resurfacing of Hwy. 12 from Sunset Avenue NW to 7th Street SE, including shoulders and turn lanes. The sidewalks, ramps and curb extensions will be updated along that route. The signal system at the intersection of Hwy. 12 and Broadway Avenue/Co. Rd. 3 will be reconstructed with a new signal system installed to better accommodate larger vehicle turns. The turn lanes will be also be reconstructed to improve access to Dassel-Cokato High School west of Cokato.

Local access will be maintained to businesses. In August, work on the intersection of Hwy. 12 and Broadway Avenue/Co. Rd. 3 will require a temporary closure and detour.
