Tree removals planned on Hwy 22 in Litchfield this week

WILLMAR, Minn. – MnDOT crews will be removing several trees along Hwy 22 in Litchfield this week, from East Butler Street to East McQuat Street, in preparation for a districtwide sidewalk improvement project this summer. The removals are scheduled for March 11 and 12, weather permitting.

Drivers will encounter temporary lane closures and a flagging operation; short delays are possible.

Tree removal is necessary to accommodate sidewalk and ramp updates that will take place to meet modern Americans with Disabilities standards.
