Old County Road 9 renamed near Eagle Lake


WILLMAR — For decades, the narrow, two-lane road that hugs the east side of Eagle Lake near Willmar has been called Kandiyohi County Road 9.

With a major road project in the area that resulted in the construction of a new segment of County Road 9 that crosses farm fields far away from the lake, road names needed to be changed.

At their meeting Tuesday, the Kandiyohi County Commissioners agreed that the old County Road 9 will be known as East Eagle Lake Road.
