The Minnesota Department of Transportation is holding an open house this week for the public to learn more about the Highway 22 project from Mankato to St. Peter.
The open house is scheduled for Tuesday, June 7 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Kasota Community Center, 200 N Webster St. MnDOT staff will be available to provide information about the project, including the roadway improvements and a potential future DNR trail. No formal presentation is planned, so attendees are welcome to arrive any time.
MnDOT will reconstruct Highway 22 from south of Blue Earth Co Rd 57 in Mankato to just south of the Minnesota River Bridge in St. Peter. Lanes will be added throughout and intersections will be improved, including a Continuous T at Blue Earth Co Rd 57, intersection realignment at Blue Earth Co Rd 2, and a roundabout at Le Sueur Co Rd 21. A roundabout will also be constructed at the intersection of Highway 22 and Augusta Dr in Mankato.
This is the second of three open houses planned this summer for the Highway 22 project. The next is scheduled for June 28 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the St. Peter Community Center.
