Highway 169 construction from St. Peter to Le Sueur starts Monday


(Mankato, MN) – Construction on the northbound lanes on Highway 169 from St. Peter to Le Sueur starts Monday, April 30.

Northbound and southbound Highway 169 traffic will be reduced to a single land, head-to-head configuration.  No detour is anticipated, but there will be periodic ramp closures throughout the project that will impact local traffic.

Construction is scheduled through October on the 10 miles of northbound Highway 169 and includes:

  • Resurfacing northbound lanes for a smoother road surface
  • Replacing northbound bridge over Robert’s Creek, just north of St. Peter
  • Cleaning, repairing and replacing culverts
  • Upgrading guardrail
  • Adding high tension cable median barrier to protect against median crossover head-to-head accidents
  • Grading to improve drainage patterns and roadway side slopes
  • Installing interchange lighting at the Highway 169/Highway 93 interchange in Le Sueur
  • Adding Dynamic Message Signs to provide traveler information.

The project contractor is PCiRoads of St. Michael, MN, winning the project with a bid of $14,291,543.
