Expect changes at Hwy 111 and 99 intersection in Nicollet

Intersection changed to all-way stop Nov. 1

MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists are advised that the intersection of Highway 111 and Highway 99 in Nicollet will require all drivers to stop beginning Nov. 1.

An all-way stop will be in place for two weeks to prepare motorists for the final permanent change to a two-way stop condition where Highway 99 motorists will need to stop.

Until this change, Highway 111 motorists were required to stop.  With the movement of Highway 14 to the south of Nicollet, Highway 99 will end at the intersection with Highway 111.  Old Highway 99 west of Highway 111 will become a Nicollet County Road and will no longer connect to Highway 14.  Eliminating the stop condition will reduce delay for motorists on Highway 111, which will contain the majority of the traffic at the intersection after the Highway 14 expansion project is complete.

The Highway 14 four-lane expansion is still on track for a mid-November opening.
