Intersection update

Crews continued constructing the new RCUT intersection at Highway 212 and Highway 284/County Road 53 in Cologne this week. Above, workers prepare the western U-turn area. Stage 1 involved pouring the center median concrete and improving the County Road 36 entrance ramp.

Stage 2 of the project was scheduled to begin this week. During this portion of the project, the free right turn lanes onto Highway 212 will be closed and traffic will be detoured using County Road 36 and Village Parkway. One lane of Highway 212 will remain open in both directions. Both lanes are expected to be open at the completion of Stage 2 around Sept. 21. The project is scheduled for completion around Oct. 26 after the County Road 36 and Highway 212 intersection is modified.
