Permanent repairs to culvert on Highway 99 near Montgomery
(Mankato, MN) – Permanent repairs for a failed culvert on Highway 99 east of Highway 13 are scheduled to begin August 31.

Motorists can still access the Montgomery Apple Orchard from the west using Highway 99 at the Highway 13 intersection.
The stretch of road closed on June 30 due to a failed culvert after heavy rains. MnDOT crews dug into the site for emergency repairs as soon as the water receded. It was determined that the culvert needed to be replaced.
