MnDOT to host April 11 open house in Litchfield for Highway 24 repair project

WILLMAR, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public to attend an in-person construction open house on Thursday, April 11, to learn about the upcoming Highway 24 concrete repair project in Meeker County. The open house will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Litchfield Public Library, 216 N. Marshall Ave., Litchfield.

There are no formal presentations and people are invited to stop by at their convenience during open house hours. MnDOT staff and the contractor will be available to answer questions about the construction phase of the project, including the timeline and detours.

MnDOT will be repairing and smoothing the pavement on four sections of concrete along Highway 24 in Meeker County, from Highway 12 in Litchfield to Highway 15 north of Kingston.

A detour of Highway 24 is required to complete the project (see attached map). Construction is scheduled to begin May 6, and end May 31, weather permitting.

Project benefits and cost
Benefits of the project include an improved road surface for a smoother ride, reduced maintenance costs, and extended pavement life. PCiRoads, LLC, is the apparent low bidder, and the project cost is approximately $812,000.
