Streetscape survey now available for Highway 12 downtown Litchfield study

WILLMAR, Minn. – The public is invited to take the draft streetscape survey as part of the Highway 12 downtown Litchfield study.  The survey is available at www.us12downtownlitchfield.com.

MnDOT is planning a reconstruction of Highway 12 and Highway 22 through downtown Litchfield in 2019.  The reconstruction involves four blocks of Highway 12 and Highway 22 from Commercial Street to 4th Street.  The reconstruction includes the roadway and sidewalks.

Prior to the construction MnDOT is requesting feedback from the community as part of the Highway 12 downtown Litchfield study.  The study aims to identify the needs of the Litchfield community and other roadway users.

For more information on this study please visit www.us12downtownlitchfield.com.

The next open house will be held on Thursday, March 24, 2016 from 4-7 p.m.  The location is yet to be determined.

This project helps ensure Minnesota’s transportation system will continue to serve the state for many years.
