Motorists can expect the northbound lanes of Highway 169 north of St. Peter to be restricted to one lane the week of November 9, weather permitting, as crews work on a culvert under the highway.

The Highway 169 northbound lane closure in the wide divide near milepost 70 will allow the Minnesota Department of Transportation to complete the lining of a pipe while the Minnesota River levels are low.

The closure is planned for Monday, November 9 to November 12 if weather allows.

Motorists are advised to reduce speeds, drive with caution and watch for workers, equipment and traffic control devices.
