Highway 68 seal coat project between Mankato, New Ulm begins Aug. 1



MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists may experience delays on Highway 68 between Mankato and New Ulm beginning Monday, Aug. 1.


Crews will apply a seal coat to Highway 68. Motorists should anticipate lane closures during operations, and traffic will be controlled with a pilot car.

The seal coat is a preventative maintenance measure that provides a protective layer, reducing deterioration due to sun and moisture.

The project is scheduled to be completed by Thursday, Aug. 11, weather permitting.
