Hwy 169 St. Peter

Broadway Avenue to Union Street

About this project

The pavement on Hwy 169 from Broadway Ave. to Union St. (approximately half of a mile) is deteriorating more quickly than the subsequent sections of Hwy 169. MnDOT completed a maintenance project in 2019 that extended the life of the pavement in this segment, gaining about 5-7 years before a future project will address a more significant pavement fix and other accommodations.

The area also has the potential to be reconfigured to provide better traffic flow and safer highway access. As a roadway design is further developed and finalized, specifics of the layout and a timeline will be shared.

Benefits

  • Improved pavement, smoother road surface
  • Improved safety through:
    • Potential turn lane additions and access modifications
    • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) sidewalk and pedestrian upgrades
  • Updated storm sewers

Opportunity for Public Input

MnDOT has been working closely with the city of St. Peter on alternative layouts for this segment of Hwy 169. The public had an opportunity to review the design concepts and provide input at an open house on October 17, 2019. Those unable to attend can provide input by contacting Matt Young, project manager.
