Public invited to open house for Hwy 67 reconstruction project

WILLMAR, Minn. The public is invited to attend an in-person open house for the Hwy 67 reconstruction project in Clarkfield.  The open house will be held at the Clarkfield City Hall Meeting Room at 910 10th Avenue on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.  A brief presentation will be held at 5:15 p.m. and again at 6:15 p.m. 

For those unable to make the open house a virtual open house is available on the project’s webpage. Community members are encouraged to attend as it is convenient for them.  The Hwy 67 virtual open house allows participants the opportunity to learn more about the project and to view the roadway layout.

The Hwy 67 reconstruction project is scheduled for 2024 and includes the reconstruction of Hwy 67 from just east of the intersection of Hwy 59 to 6th Street in Clarkfield.  Replacement of the storm sewer is included in the project.  Replacement of sidewalks and the addition of pedestrian ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities (ADA) standards along the project area are also part of the reconstruction project.  The reconstruction project does not include the intersection of Hwy 67 and Hwy 59 in Clarkfield. 

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all.  If you need an ASL, foreign language interpreter, or other reasonable accommodation, or need documents in an alternative format (such as braille or large print), please email your request to Janet Miller at ADArequest.dot@state.mn.us or call 651-366-4720.
