POSTPONED: North Mankato Hwy 169/Sherman Street access closing

Bridge maintenance requires mostly daytime closures

MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists are advised that closure of the Sherman Street bridge to Highway 169 in North Mankato has been postponed. The new date is pending. It was originally scheduled to be closed Monday, June 27 through Thursday, June 30 for bridge maintenance, weather permitting.

The closure of the Sherman Street Bridge area will largely be during the daytime; however, an overnight closure may be necessary during the repairs. The repairs consist of curb and gutter work as years of flooding in the area have damaged the existing infrastructure.

Motorists can use the alternate routes of Belgrade Avenue and Lookout Drive in North Mankato to access Highway 169.
