This site has been created to provide one location where the public
can get details about the US Route 12/45 Widening and Reconstruction
project scope and the construction staging and schedule. The
information is intended to help you understand what we will be doing
and when the work is anticipated to take place.
As the Department works to make this section of roadway safer for
the future, we want to make sure users, residents and local business
owners have up to date information on the progress of the project.
If you have any questions about the project that have not been
answered with the information on this site please use the “Contact
Us” section and a response will be sent to you.
