Northbound Hwy 169 in Mankato single lane closure moved to shoulder closure near Veterans Memorial Bridge

MANKATO, Minn. — Northbound Hwy 169 in Mankato near Belgrade Avenue/Veterans Memorial Bridge has been moved from a single lane closure to a shoulder closure. The initial lane closure put in place yesterday afternoon was due to a sinkhole that formed near a catch basin.

Minnesota Department of Transportation crews secured the area, allowing for the lane closure to be removed. The shoulder closure will remain in place until river water levels recede and MnDOT can establish a permanent fix.

MnDOT urges motorists to drive with caution in the area and watch for workers and traffic control devices.
