Detour of Hwy 4 in Hector ends October 13

WILLMAR, Minn. – The detour of Highway 4 through the city of Hector ends tomorrow, October 13.  Detour signs will be removed and the road will be opened to traffic.

The city of Hector began a project on August 18 which detoured motorists between the junction of Highway 4 and Douglass Ave to the junction of Highway 4 and Birch Ave.  The project included storm sewer and sanitary sewer work, a water main replacement and the construction of sidewalk and pedestrian ramps to meet current ADA standards.

As always, MnDOT urges motorists to drive with caution in work zones and to slow down when workers are present.
