Hwy 68 resurfacing from Hwy 71 to Morgan begins June 18


WILLMAR, Minn. — Motorists will experience delays on Highway 68 between Highway 71 and Highway 67 in Morgan as crews resurface the 10-mile stretch of road beginning Monday, June 18.


The project will limit the highway to one lane in the construction zone, and a pilot car will lead traffic through the work. Resurfacing will begin at Highway 71 and move east towards Highway 67.


The Highway 68 resurfacing project costs $1.09 million and began last week with the installation of accessible pedestrian ramps.

Motorists will experience a smoother and safer road surface when the project is complete.
