Informational meeting on County Road 5 project is Tuesday

WILLMAR — An informational meeting about a major reconstruction project on Kandiyohi County Road 5 south of Willmar will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Health and Human Services Building, 2200 23rd St. N.E. in Willmar.

The 10½-mile project, which extends from County Road 15 near the south edge of Willmar to just north of state Highway 7 in Roseland, is scheduled to take place next year.

The project also includes grade work to prepare for a bridge that will be constructed over state Highway 23 in 2016 by the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The meeting will provide information to property owners along County Road 5 who will be affected by both projects.

The meeting is an opportunity to review the proposed design, ask questions and provide input to help the county finalize the reconstruction plans, according to Public Works Director Gary Danielson.

Those who are unable to attend the meeting can stop by the Kandiyohi County Highway Department office at 1801 Highway 12 East, Willmar and discuss the project. Summer office hours are 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
