WILLMAR — The Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Corridors of Commerce program has set aside $1.5 million to do the environmental study of the remaining two-lane sections of Highway 23 between Willmar and St. Cloud.

The appropriation is a first step toward having a project ready for construction when funding becomes available, but it will take four years or longer to get to construction.
