Environmental review planned for Highway 23 from New London to Paynesville


WILLMAR — Although there are currently no plans or money to complete the state Highway 23 four-lane project, an environmental study will be done now on a seven-mile stretch of the two-lane road between New London and Paynesville.

Completing the environmental review and layout will be a significant step in planning for improvements if funds become available in the future, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, which announced plans Thursday to conduct the study.
