MnDOT conducts vehicle counts on city streets


WILLMAR -- If you've driven on one of Willmar's main streets recently, your vehicle was likely counted by the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

MnDOT is required by the federal government to conduct traffic counts every two years on trunk highways, such as U.S. Highway 12, and every four years on state-aid city streets and state-aid county roads.

This year is Willmar's year to be counted. Willmar was last counted in 2006, said City Public Works Director Mel Odens.
