Highway 7 Safety Study Kicks Off with Virtual Open House


WILLMAR, Minn. – MnDOT District 8 and McLeod County are conducting a safety study of Highway 7 from just east of Hutchinson to County Road 9 in Lester Prairie.

The goals of the study are to evaluate the existing conditions along Highway 7 and to work with local partners, stakeholders and the community to create a common vision for managing the corridor now and in the future. 

The study will provide recommendations to improve safety and develop a plan that outlines appropriate access along Highway 7.  The final plan will also identify potential funding for safety projects.

The Highway 7 virtual open house includes information on the safety study and the opportunity to ask questions and leave comments.  Area residents are encouraged to attend as it is convenient for them.
