Advisory group for Hwy 23 safety improvement project starts work

WILLMAR, Minn. – MnDOT District 8 is re-engaging the community in a process to identify a safety improvement project for the intersection of Hwy 23 and Hwy 9 in New London.
MnDOT secured Pamela Whitmore, Whitmore Resolution Group, to facilitate the advisory group, and to assist in the engagement.

The advisory group is integral to helping analyze potential safety solutions, consider public feedback, and make a recommendation to MnDOT on a safety solution that can be implemented in the next five years, will allow for future growth, minimize impacts on adjacent properties and assure the flow of commerce on Hwy 23.  The process is expected to take approximately 6 months.  In-person and virtual options will be available for the public to give input throughout the process.

The advisory group met on Monday, April 11, 2022.  A list of advisory group members and a summary of the first meeting is available on the project webpage. The group is expected to meet again in June to start the process of discussing safety options and opportunities for the public to give input.
