Highway 60 Lake Crystal to Mankato to get median barriers

MANKATO, Minn. — Motorists are advised that Highway 60 from Lake Crystal to Mankato will have inside lane closures beginning Monday, October 7, weather permitting, to allow crews to install cable barriers in the median.

All access and turn lanes along Highway 60 will remain open, including access to Welsh Heritage Farms.

The cable median barrier project begins at Blue Earth County Road 112 in Lake Crystal to the south junction of Highway 60 and Highway 169 and extends along Highway 169/60 in Mankato to the Blue Earth River. The work will take about a month, weather permitting.

The project is part of the districtwide safety improvements to limit severe cross-median crashes on four-lane divided highways. More information on the barriers can be found at mndot.gov/trafficeng/reports/cmbarrier.html.
