WILLMAR — Construction of a water control structure is underway on Kandiyohi County Road 8 about three-fourths of a mile south of County Road 119 near Lake Wakanda. A section of the road is reduced to one lane and temporary traffic lights are in place to allow traffic safely through the work area.

The project, which is a part of the Lake Wakanda enhancement project, is expected to take three to four weeks, weather permitting.

The overall project to improve the diversity of the lake’s ecosystem and natural habitat consists of two water control structures with fish barriers and two concrete box culverts with fish barriers.
