Permanent striping on the Reduced Conflict Intersection in Marshall scheduled to start Monday, May 23

WILLMAR, Minn. — The Reduced Conflict Intersection, or “J-turn”, in Marshall at the intersection of Highway 23 and Saratoga Street will receive permanent striping, signing, bridge painting and median grinding starting on Monday, May 23.  The project is scheduled to take 1-2 weeks weather permitting.

During this time motorists can expect alternating lane closures, short delays and a 14’ width limit will be in effect.  Work on the shoulder and in the median will also be going on.  The speed limit in the work zone will be reduced to 40 mph.

The city of Marshall will be closing Saratoga Street to through traffic during this time.  Saratoga Street from Southview Drive north of Highway 23, south to Genesis Avenue, south of Highway 23 will be closed.  Local traffic will be allowed, but no access to Highway 23 will be allowed during the closure.

Robert R. Schroeder Construction Co. is the contractor on the project.

Motorists are urged to drive with caution in work zones and to slow down when workers are present.
