Hwy 169, Blue Earth to Elmore construction nearly complete

MANKATO, Minn. – Construction on Highway 169 between Blue Earth and Elmore is nearly complete, and lane restrictions are expected to be removed on Saturday, June 18, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The project, which began in late April, included resurfacing nine miles of Highway 169. The project also included culvert repairs, adding centerline and edge line rumble strips, and the installation of lighting at three county road intersections.

Benefits of the project include improved pavement, smoother road surface, improved safety with turn lane and access modifications, and safer rural intersections with added lighting.
