Expect delays on Hwy 7 near Lake Lillian

WILLMAR, Minn. – Highway 7, about two miles east of Lake Lillian, is down to one lane of traffic. 

Water used to combat a house fire nearby has caused thick ice to form on the roadway. 

MnDOT crews are on the scene flagging traffic, but motorists should expect delays for the next two to three hours. 

An update will be sent out when the road is back open to two lanes.
