Lane restrictions on Hwy 169 in St. Peter begin April 3

MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists are advised to expect daytime lane restrictions on Highway 169 at the south end of St. Peter starting Monday, April 3, weather permitting, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Crews will install a temporary traffic signal at West Elm Street in preparation for construction later this summer.

Northbound and southbound lane closures are expected on Highway 169 between West Pine Street and West St. Paul Street in St. Peter Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for approximately two weeks. 

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.
