The Highway 12 Downtown Litchfield Study is now complete.

MnDOT asked for public feedback (prior to reconstruction in 2019) as part of the Highway 12 Downtown Litchfield Study. The study identifies the needs of the Litchfield community, and other roadway users, and provides recommendations and conceptual drawings for a street design that will balance the needs of multiple stakeholders.
