West Diamond Lake access reopened to vehicle traffic by Kandiyohi Co., Minn., sheriff

WILLMAR -- The Kandiyohi County Sheriff's office is opening the west access, at County Park 3, to Diamond Lake.

According to Sheriff Dan Hartog, the condition of the ice off the access is rough, but there is no open water at this time.

Citizens are reminded to pay attention to the ice conditions, as they change without notice.

The access point was closed to motor vehicle traffic last week after the ice sheet heaved and water below the surface overflowed, creating about a foot of slush and unsafe conditions.
