Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission executive director Aaron Backman created a half-page glossy brochure to complete promotion of the four-lane highway on state Highway 23 between Willmar and Interstate 94. The brochure says Willmar is the largest outstate city without four-lane access and that having a four-lane highway will attract and retain businesses and jobs in the region.
