Community members invited to online Open House for Highway 7 Roundabout Project
WILLMAR, Minn. – MnDOT District 8 and McLeod County are looking for input on the Highway 7 roundabout project.
A roundabout is planned for the intersection of Highway 7 and McLeod County Road 1 near Lester Prairie in 2023. MnDOT received funding from the Highway Safety Improvement Program to construct a roundabout at the intersection as it has been the site of several crashes.
The Highway 7 online open house allows participants the opportunity to learn more about the project, ask questions and give feedback.
The open house is posted on the project webpage and community members are invited to attend as it is convenient for them.
Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) invites and encourages participation by all. We believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to enjoy the programs, services and activities we provide.
