As the construction on Highway 169 for the Mankato levee nears completion, traffic impacts will be improved by Tuesday, November 6 including the opening of all ramps at Highway 14/169.

Highway 169 traffic will remain single lane in each direction, but not in a head to head situation.  The left turn into Happy Chef and the BP gas station need to remain closed to accommodate the removal of the crossover, guardrail installation and striping.

Motorists can expect these restrictions to be in place until mid to late November, weather permitting.

The project is designed to bring the Mankato Levee up to current FEMA standards and is a partnership effort between MnDOT, Mankato and North Mankato.
