MnDOT reports opening for intersection on Highway 71 delayed


WILLMAR -- The opening of the newly redesigned intersection on North Business 71 near the Health and Human Services Building in Willmar is being held up.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation had planned to open the intersection sometime this week, according to Diane Beck, public af-fairs coordinator for MnDOT's District 8 headquarters in Willmar. But a problem with the manufacturer of the traffic signs will delay the opening.
