PAYNESVILLE -- The long-awaited state Highway 23 bypass around the city of Paynesville is expected to open in mid-July -- a good month ahead of schedule.

Construction began in April of 2010 and even though the state budget shutdown put a temporary halt to construction last year, mild fall weather helped crews get ahead of schedule, according to Paul Rasmussen, project engineer with the Minnesota Department of Transportation District 8 office in Willmar.
