MnDOT Announces Road Work on Hwy. 12 in Cokato Will Be Completed Tomorrow

Travelers will experience smoother lanes, wider sidewalks and safer accesses along Highway 12 through Cokato as crews finish the four-month project Friday, Nov. 6, the Minnesota Department of Transportation announced in a statement today. 

Road signs and traffic control devices will be removed throughout the work zone. The new signal system at Highway 12 and Broadway Avenue/Wright County Road 3 is activated and MnDOT will monitor the signal timing the next few weeks.

The $3.8 million project provides: a new asphalt road surface, includes turn lanes, shoulders and adjacent entrances; updated sidewalks and ramps; improved access to Broadway Avenue/Wright County Road 3 to better accommodate larger vehicle turns; updated underground city utilities; and added turn lanes to the Dassel-Cokato High School, west of Cokato.
