Hwy 4 will be reconstructed and improved from Cartway Dr and Ball Park in Lake Henry in 2018. The public is invited to attend a Project Open House on Thursday, Dec. 8, 2016, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Lake Henry City Hall.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Motorists and area residents who travel Highway 4 through Lake Henry are encouraged to attend an open house to learn about a proposed project that will reconstruct Highway 4 through Lake Henry in 2018.

The open house will be held Thursday, Dec. 8, 2016 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Lake Henry City Hall.

Those attending the open house will be able to see the latest project layout showing the proposed design and learn details about the project, including how the project may affect traffic and adjacent properties. MnDOT staff will be available to answer questions.

The open house format is informal, and attendees may arrive at any time during open house hours.

The project as proposed will resurface the roadway and replace sidewalks, storm sewer and curb and gutter along Highway 4 in Lake Henry in Stearns County. The new design will reduce the roadway’s parking lane width by five feet on each side of the highway, and repurpose that space to improve accessibility and safety along the roadway and provide a functional boulevard to protect utilities and provide space for snow storage.

Questions and comments about the open house or project may be directed to Claudia Dumont, MnDOT Project Manager at claudia.dumont@state.mn.us or 320-223-6530.
