MARSHALL (KMHL) – The Marshall City Council put its support behind efforts to expand State Highway 23 to four lanes.

The Marshall City Council passed a resolution in support of building a four-lane roadway between Marshall and Green Valley. That expansion plan is one of the plans being advocated for by the Highway 23 Coalition.

The coalition’s goal is to eventually make Highway 23 a four lane highway for its whole route.

The 4.5 mile expansion between Marshall and Green Valley is estimated to cost around $27 million.
