SAFETY BENEFITS:
The new road surface, sidewalk ramps and railroad crossing will extend the life of road, improve the ride quality for motorists, and improve safety and access for pedestrians and motorists.

There will be single-lane closures on US-12 with traffic maintained by a flagging operation. During railroad crossing reconstruction in mid-August, US-12 will be closed and a detour posted on Conrad Road, May Street, and M-62.
