The cable will be installed along the southbound lane of Highway 71/23, from Kandiyohi County Road 90 in Willmar to the Highway 71/23 split north of Willmar.

The $317,589 project is part of a safety project in the Minnesota Department of Transportation's District 8, which is headquartered in Willmar.

The project is scheduled to begin on Monday, weather permitting.

The southbound left-lane will be closed occasionally, creating minor traffic slow-downs for motorists during the project, according to MnDOT.

Mn/DOT urges motorists to plan ahead, watch for lane closure signs, slow down and be alert for workers in the work zone.
