Willmar Avenue and Industrial Drive closed today

WILLMAR — Willmar Avenue Southwest and Industrial Drive Southwest will be closed today for street and utility improvements, according to city of Willmar and Jennie-O Turkey Store officials.  

    The closure is necessary so that other road projects near Jennie-O can be completed in a timely manner, according to a news release.

    A signed detour will lead traffic around the construction zone on Trott Avenue between Industrial Drive and Kandiyohi County Road 5, but Industrial Drive, south of the new Willmar Avenue alignment, will be open only to the Jennie-O Turkey Store corporate office parking area.

    City officials expect that all current projects in that area will be completed by November 1.
