St. Peter

Project overview

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.

The final layout can be viewed here: Hwy 169/Hwy 22/Hwy 99 layout (June 2021)
