MnDOT is re-analyzing a safety improvement for the intersection of Hwy 23 and Hwy 9 in New London. A J-turn was planned, but hearing concerns, MnDOT made the decision to pause the project and re-engage the community.
The decision to pause the J-turn project means that the intersection will remain substantially as is. Depending on the selected safety improvement, construction of an improvement could be delayed until 2024 or later.
