MnDOT to hold open house on Hwy 12 downtown Litchfield project

WILLMAR, Minn. – The public is invited to attend an open house on Tuesday, April 19 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the Sweet Depot (207 N Sibley Avenue in Litchfield) on the Highway 12 project involving downtown Litchfield.

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 has requested 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.

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