MANKATO, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Minnesota State Patrol report that Hwy 19 from Hwy 169 to Henderson will open around 5 p.m. today.  Hwy 19 from Hwy 169 to Henderson has been closed since March 20 due to flooding.


Hwy 22 between Mankato and St. Peter is expected to remain closed until early May as Mn/DOT works on emergency repairs due to a washout from overland flooding near Kasota.  Chard Tiling of Belle Plaine was awarded the emergency contract with a bid of $153,383.61 and plans to begin work Friday, April 22, weather permitting.
