(KWLM/Litchfield MN-) The reconstruction of Highway 12 from 4th Street to the intersection of Highway 12 and Highway 22 begins Monday (March 30), which means the detour will also go into effect.
This is the second year of the Highway 12 Litchfield project.
Last year, 4th Street from Highway 12 to the outlet at Jewett Creek was reconstructed and a pond was built to improve drainage.
The City of Litchfield is updating utilities (sanitary sewer & water) in the downtown as part of the 2020 project.
Officials say benefits of the project include a smoother road surface, modernized sanitary sewer and water, and improved drainage.
Landwehr Construction is the contractor on the project.
