WILLMAR, Minn. – The reconstruction of 4th Street in Litchfield from Highway 12 to the outlet at Jewett Creek (N Donnelly Ave.) is scheduled to be complete and opened to traffic on Tuesday, November 12.
MnDot Officials say the final layer of pavement will be placed in the spring of 2020 along with seeding work.
The reconstruction of 4th Street from Highway 12 to the outlet at Jewett Creek (N Donnelly Ave.) began Monday, June 3. A detour was required. As part of the drainage project a pond was constructed on the west side of Jewett Creek.
The 4th Street project is the first phase of the Highway 12 project which will take two construction seasons to complete. (see maps below)
Starting in the spring of 2020, MnDOT will start reconstructing Highway 12 from 4th Street to E Commercial Street.
The City of Litchfield is updating utilities (sanitary sewer & water) during the 2020 construction season.
Benefits of the project include a smoother road surface, modernized sanitary sewer and water and improved drainage.
