WILLMAR, Minn. — The first open house for the 2018 Highway 23 Marshall projects is set for Wednesday, July 19 at the Marshall-Lyon Library (201 C Street) in Marshall. The open house will run from 5-6:30 pm.

The public will have the opportunity to learn more about the two Reduced Conflict Intersections, or j-turns, which will be constructed on Highway 23 at the intersection of CR 7 and Lyon Street as well as the restricted left turn lane that will be constructed at Highway 23 and Clarice Street.

The projects are a result of the work done as part of the Highway 23 Marshall Area Safety Study. Construction is expected to begin in 2018.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation – District 8, City of Marshall, The Marshall Area Transportation Group and Lyon County worked together as a team with the purpose of developing a common vision to manage the Highway 23 corridor now and into the future. The final report can be found at mndot.gov/d8/projects/hwy23marshallstudy/.

The projects will require a detour. Funding was secured through the Highway Safety Improvement Program. For more information on the project visit the webpage at www.dot.state.mn.us/d8/projects/hwy23marshall/.
