Mn/DOT offers open house on Highway 169 Minnesota River Bridge Plans

     

Replacement of the U.S. Highway 169 Minnesota River Bridge at LeSueur and associated roadwork will be the subject of an open-house style meeting on Monday, June 13 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the LeSueur Council Chambers at 203 South Second Street in LeSueur.

Mn/DOT has scheduled the meeting just prior to the LeSueur City Council meeting and will provide information on the replacement of the river bridge and improvements being made to Highway 169 from the intersection with State Highway 93 to the interchange at State Highway 19 scheduled to begin during the 2006 construction season.

Replacing the Highway 169 Minnesota River crossing is estimated to cost $16.4 million and the Highway 169 road surface improvements are estimated at $1.9 million. The bridge replacement project is expected to be complete by the fall of 2008. Traffic will be maintained on Highway 169 throughout the project with lane restrictions.

The public is encouraged to stop by anytime between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. Anyone with special needs to attend can contact Public Affairs Coordinator Rebecca Arndt at 1-800-657-3747.
