Highway 169 Construction

And here we go! Construction on highway 169 through Blue Earth starts today, Monday, June 10th. The first step of this project is the installation of a “crossover lane” on 169 just north of the McDonald’s/Wal Mart intersection. This crossover lane is necessary in order for traffic to be diverted to the detour. Traffic will be detoured east past McDonald’s to County Road 11, south on 11, then west back into Blue Earth near the 7th St intersection. However, that intersection will be shut down while the roundabout is installed and traffic will be diverted to the back side of Kwik Trip and then south again out of town. We will be posting weekly updates as well as a link to the MNDoT website. Also feel free to take a look at the project newsletter, detour maps and project schedule.
