Highway 12 will be reconstructed through downtown Litchfield in 2020. MnDOT and the city of Litchfield have partnered to test a pedestrian flashing beacon at the intersection of Highway 12 and 3rd Street for a period of 90 days.  The pedestrian flashing beacon was installed on October 24, 2017.   MnDOT and the City of Litchfield surveyed residents in December of 2017 after the test had been going on for approximately 30 days.

The test has been going on for almost 90 days and we wanted to touch base and get your opinion on how you feel the intersection is working now that people have had a chance to become familiar with the change.

Please take a moment to take this survey and give us your feedback.  If you didn't respond to the first survey - you can still take this survey.
