Officials say redesign will prevent intersection crashes

Email

WILLMAR -- A proposed highway redesign would reduce crashes at the Business 71/County Road 24/23rd Street intersection west of the Kandiyohi County Health and Human Services Building.

The design would prohibit east-west traffic on 23rd Street and County Road 24 from crossing the northbound and southbound lanes of Business 71 and eliminate an unusually high number of right-angle intersection crashes.
