Orange barrels on a highway

Sunday ramp closure - Hwy 14 westbound to Hwy 169 southbound

Lane closure on Hwy 14 Bridge over the Minnesota River

MANKATO, Minn. — Mankato area motorists are advised that the ramp from Highway 14 westbound to Highway 169 southbound will be closed at first light (around 6 a.m.) on Sunday, Sept. 8, weather permitting.

The closure also includes one lane of Highway 14 on the Minnesota River Bridge and is expected to last up to 10 hours.

The restrictions are necessary for the bridge crew from the Minnesota Department of Transportation to make deck repairs.  Traffic volumes and speeds on the Mankato bypass are too high during the weekdays for the crew to make these repairs so closely to traffic.

Motorists need to use caution; watch for workers, equipment and traffic control devices in the work zone.
