The Minnesota Department of Transportation is delaying the project to reconstruct U.S. Highway 212 in Renville County until 2023, by one year. The project would reconstruct the highway from Hawk Creek to Renville County Road 6. It includes rebuilding the highway through the city of Sacred Heart.
The scope of the project is changing and MnDOT is planning to add a westbound passing lane just west of Sacred Heart. MnDOT is also planning to offer two options for rebuilding the highway.
