WILLMAR, Minn. –   A detour will be required to complete the Redwood Falls concrete repair project.  Motorists will be detoured at the Highway 71/Highway 19 intersection (“Y”) in Redwood Falls south on Minnesota Street to East Broadway Street/Highway 67 then north on Redwood CR 1.  The detour is expected to last 4 days while the concrete cures.

The Redwood Falls concrete repair projects began September 12.  This project is part of the 2016 district wide concrete repair projects.

MnDOT asks motorists to slow down and pay attention while driving through work zones.  Remember orange cones, no phones.  Motorists who speed through a work zone or who disobey work zone flaggers face a $300 fine.
