MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Transportation officials say the Highway 12 bypass in Long Lake and Orono will reopen Friday, a week ahead of schedule.

MnDOT says the eastbound lanes of the highway will open at 5 a.m. and the westbound lanes will open at 3 p.m.

The bypass had been closed for 10 days so crews could install a median barrier to prevent crossover crashes.

  1. MNDoT defines Democrat Incompetence says:

    Crossover crashes were almost all happening west of this!!!!!!!!!!! MNDoT designed this fubar Hwy 12/394 section just a few years ago and continues to design faulty, defective and incompetent unsafe designs. Why? So they can get more funding to fix their Democrat incompetence. Otherwise these government union goons would have no work after a road is built or rebuilt.
