Road work to shut down part of Hwy. 12 near Wynot

HARTINGTON — Weather permitting, construction will begin this week on Highway 12 in Cedar County.

The work is scheduled to take place between Highway 57 and Highway 15 and will include the Wynot Spur and the St. Helena spur.

The bridge that spans Bow Creek just east of Wynot will be replaced. Local traffic will have limited access, but through traffic will be detoured onto Highway 15, Highway 84 and Highway 57.

Highway 12 is expected to be re-opened in mid-November, but final completion of the project isn’t slated until the spring of 2018.
