Crews will close the left lane on both eastbound and westbound US 12 near Copland Road while the repair work is under way.

Traffic attenuators are accordion-type roadway structures that are designed to collapse when struck. This action absorbs energy and slows the vehicles in an attempt to reduce damage to the vehicle, motorists and other nearby roadway structures.
