Northbound Hwy 169 reduced to single lane near Veterans Memorial Bridge

MANKATO, Minn. – Northbound Highway 169 near Belgrade Avenue/Veterans Memorial Bridge has been reduced to single lane due to a sinkhole that formed near a catch basin.

The lane will be closed until further notice. Minnesota Department of Transportation crews are evaluating a repair and are coordinating with the city of North Mankato and Corps of Engineers due to the high river levels in the area.

MnDOT urges motorists to slow down, drive with caution and watch for workers, equipment and traffic control devices.
