Highway 19 Access
to Highway 169 Northbound
to Close Friday
Minn. - Once again, State Highway 19 motorists from the
west will need to use a detour to access Highway 169 northbound
lanes until the new interchange is complete. The detour,
which consists of State Highway 93, will be in place on
Friday, February 27.
Motorists are also reminded that spring weight road restrictions
will also be in place beginning Friday.
Portions of the new interchange were temporarily surfaced
with gravel to open the interchange to accommodate northbound
traffic over the winter. The gravel portions are becoming
impassible during the spring thaw. After the thaw, contractors
will resume work on the interchange.
Highway 19 to the east of the interchange also remains closed
and traffic detoured until the project can be completed
The detour for Highway 19 east to New Prague consists of
State Highway 93, U. S. Highway 169 and LeSueur County Highways
28 and 11.
The Highway 169/19 interchange has been under construction
since May 2002.
Fast. Too Close. Too Late.
