WILLMAR -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation will provide information on the state Highway 23 Marshall-to-Russell concrete overlay and pedestrian underpass project from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday at the Marshall MnDOT building, 1800 E.

The concrete overlay project extends east, north of Russell to one-half mile north of junction with Highway 19 in Marshall.
