MnDOT District 8 invites Willmar area residents to participate in an online open house for the US 71 project. Starting in June, several projects will take place along US 71 in Willmar.
Planned projects include:
A detour will be required for the concrete resurfacing work and to complete a portion of the J-turn project. Roads that connect Kandiyohi County Road 24 near the Kandiyohi Health and Human Services building to the US 71 and Highway 23 split will be closed at various times during the project. Neighborhoods with only one access (north side of Point Lake) will always have access. Kandiyohi County Road 24 and Kandiyohi County Road 25 will not be closed at the same time.
The US 71 online open house allows participants the opportunity to learn more about the project at a time that is convenient for them. A link to the open house can be found on the project website at https://www.dot.state.mn.us/d8/projects/us71cr90/index.html. The online open house will be open until January 15, 2021.
MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all. If you need an ASL, a foreign language interpreter, or other reasonable accommodation, or need documents in an alternative format (such as braille or large print), please email your request to Janet Miller at [email protected] or call 651-366-4720.
