WILLMAR—If all goes to plan, Kandiyohi County could see major investment in its state highway network over the next 10 years.
Based on the District 8 2023-2032 Capital Highway Investment Plan from the Minnesota Department of Transportation, work is planned on several major Kandiyohi County thoroughfares including state Highway 23, state Highway 40 and U.S. Highway 71.
Tony Pfau, MnDOT planner, presented the plan at the Sept. 19 meeting of the Kandiyohi County Board. He briefly went over each project to take place in the county.
MnDOT is planning on investing $564 million in the district over the next decade. This will include 516 miles of road resurfaced or reconstructed, 24 bridges repaired or replaced, 9 standalone highway safety projects and 24 projects with improvements for bikers across the district, which includes 12 counties in southwest Minnesota.
