MARSHALL (KMHL) – Around 40 people and business leaders in Marshall turned out to hear an update from the Minnesota Department of Transportation yesterday at the Marshall Area Chamber of Commerce.

MnDOT is planning a major reconstruction of Highway 19 through downtown Marshall in 2025. Planning is underway for the project which will replace the road and sidewalks and repair utility lines from the intersection of College Drive and 4th Street through Bruce Street in downtown Marshall.

Organizers told business leaders yesterday they plan to let the projects for bids in 2024 and will work on detailed design between 2021 and 2023.
