Highway 169 Sinkhole Repairs 10 Oct 11

Temporary lane restrictions will be in place on a portion of Highway 169 south of Mankato starting today (MON) while Mn/DOT crews repair a sinkhole. A stretch of the highway from Blue Earth County Road 33 to Highway 68 in South Bend Township was closed late last week after the hole appeared under the southbound lanes, and temporary repairs were made overnight Thursday. More permanent repairs will now be made, and motorists are advised to use caution while work is being performed in that area.
