Highway 169 motorists in Saint Peter are advised to expect delays and lane closures beginning Thursday, July 15 as contractors replace the pavement markings from the south junction of Highway 22 to north of Chestnut Street. Work will occur during daytime hours until July 21, weather permitting.
While the work is occurring, turns on to and off of side streets will be limited to allow for the replacement of crosswalk markings. Traffic coming from or destined for Broadway and East Highway 99 will also experience a short two-block detour to Nassau Street to allow for the replacement of markings at the Highway 169 intersection with Broadway/East Highway 99. Northbound Highway 169 lanes will remain open from 6 AM to 9 AM, and southbound Highway 169 lanes will remain open from 3 PM to 6 PM to reduce impacts during the commuting periods.
The project includes replacement of the striping and pavement messages along the portions of Highway 169 constructed in 2009 as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act project. Additionally, the project included the replacement of the pavement markings at the Highway 22 roundabouts in Mankato. Work on Highway 22 is anticipated to be completed by 6:30 AM on Wednesday, July 14.
