Board OKs building new road behind school to stop congestion


WILLMAR -- A new road and bus parking area should help relieve congestion around Roosevelt Elementary School next year.

On Monday, the School Board approved a contract with the city of Willmar to build the road from 15th Street Southwest to Roosevelt.

The $373,000 road and parking lot will keep bus traffic north of the building and car traffic to the south before and after school. Currently, cars and buses all use the south side of the building.
