WILLMAR — Due to stormwater work, Willmar Public Works is announcing a temporary road closure.

Oxford Drive Southeast, between 24th Street and 25th Street Southeast will be closed from 7 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, to 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31.

Traffic will not be allowed through the work area and drivers will need to find alternate routes. Drivers are also asked to drive slowly in and around construction zones for both their safety and the safety of workers.

The closure is part of the East Side Drainage Improvements stormwater project, which is being funded by local option sales tax revenue. The project should keep public stormwater out of a private development pond in the Cambridge housing development in east Willmar.
