MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists are advised to pay attention and expect brief delays as Highway 169 from Elmore to Blue Earth is scheduled for work July 25 and July 26, weather permitting.

Motorists can expect to encounter flaggers and a pilot car beginning.  Motorists are also advised of loose gravel.

The work primarily consists of seal coating to prevent water from getting under the surface and damaging the pavement.

Minnesota’s highway system is getting older and as it ages, it needs more work to keep it in good shape.
