N. Mankato Hwy 169/Sherman Street access closing July 18

Bridge maintenance requires mostly daytime closures

MANKATO, Minn. – Weather permitting, motorists are advised that the Sherman Street bridge to Highway 169 in North Mankato will be closing Monday, July 18 through Thursday, July 21 for bridge maintenance. (This project was previously scheduled for late June, but had to be postponed)

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

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.
