Mankato city manager Pat Hentges says one of their major planned road projects this year is a joint project with Blue Earth County.

“There will be a roundabout at the intersection of Pohl Road and Stadium,” said Hentges.

Hentges says the change is necessary

“At peak times, the traffic is horrendous,” said Hentges. “Oftentimes traffic backed up at the four-way for a block and a half. The roundabout will give it more free flow.”

The Mankato City Council discussed the 2020 planned street projects at its most recent meeting.
