Summary of work

MnDOT work

  • Resurfacing of Hwy 212 from just east of the junction of Hwy 23 to the junction of CR 6 in Renville.
  • Hwy 212 through Sacred Heart will be reconstructed. Sidewalks, pedestrian ramps and adjacent driveways will be upgraded to meet Americans with Disabilities (ADA) standards. Two storm water ponds are planned as part of storm sewer upgrades.
  • A passing lane (westbound) between Granite Falls and Sacred Heart will also be constructed as part of the project.

Alternative bid

  • This project will be designed as an alternative bid. This means that the project is designed with both a concrete and bituminous (black-top) pavement option. Contractors then place their bid for either option and the final pavement type is selected at the time that the project bids are opened.

Traffic impacts

  • Work will be done under a detour
  • Motorists should expect delays
