Mason City road construction expanding

(ABC 6 News)- Drivers in Mason City will need to pay close attention this week as a construction project in the city is expanding.

Starting on Monday, the project on 12th Street NE will be entering the second stage of work.

The intersection of North Carolina Ave. and 12th St. NE will be closed, while workers replace several storm sewers and install a storm sewer pipe.

Drivers will be redirected to use Virginia Ave. to access and exit the neighborhood north of 12th St. NE.

The closure of the intersection is expected to last two to three weeks.
