WILLMAR — The first phase of the road reconstruction of Kandiyohi County Road 4 north of Lake Lillian is set to begin Monday, June 7. The work zone will be from Kandiyohi County Road 83 to 120th Avenue Southeast.

This section of County Road 4 will be closed to all through traffic as crews begin removing the road surface and constructing a new one over the next several months, the Kandiyohi County Public Works Department announced. The entire project is scheduled to be completed in October.

A detour will be in place. Landowners and residents adjacent to the work zone will have access to their property.

Public Works is asking for drivers to be cautious and slow down when driving near or through construction work zones.
