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.
