Open house for Hwy 23 project in Marshall set for August 7

WILLMAR, Minn. — An open house for the Hwy 23 Reduced Conflict Intersection Project is set for Tuesday, August 7, 2018, at the Marshall-Lyon Public Library, 201 C Street, Marshall. The open house will run from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. The public will have an opportunity to learn more about the project and ask questions.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is constructing the Reduced Conflict Intersection, also referred to as a J-turn, at Hwy 23 and Lyon Street to increase safety. This type of intersection decreases fatalities and injuries caused by broadside crashes on four-lane divided highways because drivers only have to be concerned with one direction of traffic on the highway at a time. This will be the second Reduced Conflict Intersection in Marshall. The first RCI was installed at Hwy 23 and Saratoga Street in 2016.

A restricted left-turn lane will also be constructed at Hwy 23 and Clarice Street as part of the project. Work is scheduled to begin August 13, 2018.
