To improve the pavement condition, intersection safety, and traffic flow on the south side of St. Peter, the intersections of Hwy 169 with Hwy 22 and Hwy 99 will be reconstructed in 2023. With input from the City of St. Peter, residents and businesses, and other project stakeholders, MnDOT developed concepts and arrived at a layout for 2023 construction.
Weekly public construction meetings
- Weekly public construction meetings begin Thursday, May 11, 2023, from 1-2 p.m. at the St. Peter Community Center (Senior Room). The public is invited to attend the meetings to hear updates on the project. Updates will also be posted online following the meetings.
Summary of work
- Reconstruct Hwy 169 from just south of the intersection with Hwy 99 to Jefferson Ave.
- Construct a Restricted Crossing U-Turn (also known as an RCUT or J-Turn) at the intersection with Hwy 99
- Add a second left turn lane at the intersection with Hwy 22, to create dual left turn lanes for motorists traveling southbound Hwy 169 to southbound Hwy 22
Traffic will be detoured during construction. Different detour stages can be viewed on an interactive map.
