Highways 66 and 99 to be seal coated

Mankato, Minn. - State Highway 66 from Good Thunder to Mankato and State Highway 99 from St. Peter to LeCenter are scheduled to be seal coated in the next couple weeks, according to Charlie Kremer, project supervisor at the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Motorists need to be aware of loose rock on a roadway that has been recently seal coated.

Weather permitting the seal coating could take place as early as mid to late next week. The seal coating process should only take a day or two followed by the placement of an interim stripe. Crews return in about one week to apply the final stripe.

Traffic will be managed with a flag person and motorists should expect delays.

Mn/DOT uses seal coating as a way of preserving the highway pavement before it deteriorates, which results in saving dollars on future repair work.


Work Zones. Pay Attention or Pay the Price.
