Lane restrictions on Highway 169 in St. Peter begin Feb. 13

MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists are advised to expect daytime lane and shoulder restrictions on Highway 169 at the south end of St. Peter starting Monday, Feb. 13, weather permitting, as crews prepare for construction later this summer, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Alternating northbound and southbound lane and shoulder closures are expected on Highway 169 between Highway 99 and West Pine Street in St. Peter Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for approximately two weeks. 

The traffic restrictions are necessary for crews to perform underground work in advance of construction later this summer.

This summer’s intersection improvement projects in St. Peter will include adding a second turn lane on southbound Highway 169 at the intersection with Highway 22 to create a dual turn lane.  A J-Turn will also be constructed at the intersection with Highway 99.

MnDOT urges motorists to slow down, drive with caution and watch for workers, equipment, and traffic control devices.
