WILLMAR, Minn. — The public is invited to attend a Minnesota Department of Transportation open house on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, to learn about two construction projects located near Canby. The open house will be held at City Hall in Canby (110 Oscar Ave. N.) and run from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

Representatives of MnDOT and the construction contractors will be available to answer questions about the road construction phases of the projects, including timelines.

The first project includes replacing the bridge over Lazarus Creek, three miles west of Canby on Highway 68. A detour is required for this project.

The second project includes resurfacing U.S. Highway 75 from Ivanhoe to Canby, as well as sidewalk and pedestrian improvements for Highway 68 in Canby to meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards. Construction is scheduled to begin August 5, 2019, and be complete September 16, 2019.
