Weather permitting, motorists can expect intermittent closures on two busy greater Mankato highways in early February, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

State Patrol will be assisting Xcel Energy with the closures as follows:

  • Highway 14 near County Road 17 (between Nicollet and North Mankato) – February 1-3
  • Highway 60 near County Road 32 in Lake Crystal – February 1-12

Xcel energy work will take place during the daytime hours only and closures could be as brief as a few minutes up to 15 minutes maximum.

Motorists are encouraged to be alert on Highway 14 and Highway 60 and watch for Troopers and workers.
