Highway 212 On-Ramp Lane Closure
The main lane of the Highway 212 East on-ramp from Prairie Center Drive closed Monday, Feb. 3 and is anticipated to remain closed for three weeks while it's used for construction staging. The HOV carpool lane will remain open and provide motorists access to Highway 212. As a result, one of the two turn lanes from Prairie Center Drive heading north will be closed during this same time frame. (Image shows where safety cones and signage will be set up to redirect traffic.)
