Hwy 169 St. Peter

Broadway Avenue to Union Street

About this project

MnDOT is preparing design concepts for a proposed 2022 construction project that includes approximately half of a mile of Hwy 169 from Broadway Avenue to Union Street. The pavement along this segment is deteriorating more quickly than the subsequent sections of Hwy 169. In addition, the area has the potential to be reconfigured to better accommodate traffic flow in the area and provide safer highway access. Once a design alternative is selected and finalized, specifics of the pavement fix and other roadway improvements will be shared.

Benefits

  • Improved pavement, smoother road surface
  • Improved safety through:
    • Potential intersection upgrades
    • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) sidewalk and pedestrian upgrades
  • Updated sanitary and 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.
