WILLMAR, Minn. – Two resurfacing projects on U.S. Highway 12 in the Willmar area are complete. Preliminary work was finished in July when crews repaired catch basins along a portion of the project area. In August, crews began asphalt resurfacing, which has been completed at two locations:

  • US 12 from 6th Street Southeast to 24th Street Southeast in Willmar
  • US 12 from Kandiyohi CR 1 in Pennock to just east of Kandiyohi CR 5 in Willmar

Project benefits include improved drainage and a smoother road surface. The combined cost was $1.3 million, and Central Specialties, Inc., was the contractor.
