Highway 169 open to traffic

Highway 169 between St. Peter and LeSueur is now open to traffic; however a four mile segment north of St. Peter is restricted to one lane each way on the southbound lanes as Mn/DOT readies to repair the flood-damaged northbound lanes.

Highway 93 from Highway 169 to LeSueur will open around 5:30 p.m.

The Highway 99 bridge east of St. Peter will open to motorists around 6 p.m. The historic steel truss bridge on Highway 99 over the Minnesota River has been given a thorough inspection and is safe to carry traffic. The sidewalk on the Highway 99 bridge will be closed until a section of broken railing can be repaired. Pedestrians are asked to avoid using the Highway 99 bridge until the sidewalk is safe for their use.

Mn/DOT officials advise motorists to plan on a few weeks before the washed out northbound lanes of Highway 169 will be reconstructed and open to traffic.
