(Mankato, MN) – Old Highway 66 will close to resume construction beginning Monday.

The Blue Earth County Road 1 project will restart on April 8th between Indian Lake Road and Gwyn Avenue in Mankato.  The 2.4 mile stretch is the second phase of the Old Highway 66 turnback project from Good Thunder to Mankato.
