Roadwork has begun on Highway 12 between Howard Lake, Waverly and Montrose. Work will ramp up in mid-September as crews mill and pave a new layer of asphalt or resurface. Drivers will encounter some delays and periodic stops as traffic will be reduced to one lane in spots. Flaggers and a pilot car will direct traffic. Heavy equipment will be part of the project. Work on the project will be done during daylight hours on good weather days Mondays through Fridays with occasional Saturday work. The project is expected to be finished by mid-October.
