Highway 12 in Kandiyohi County from County Road 4 to County Road 8 opened back up at about 11:30 this morning (Monday) after being closed at about 9am.
MnDot officials say the highway was closed so authorities could conduct an accident reconstruction from a crash that happened last week.
MnDot District 8 Public Affairs Coordinator Judy Jacobs says crews couldn’t do the reconstruction last week because they had to go to another crash on Highway 7 that required road closure and accident reconstruction. Jacobs say crews also repaired some road damage caused by the accident. She says they wanted to do that before any snowfall.
