Mudslide Closes Highway 169 20 Apr 13

Highway 169 southbound from St. Peter was closed down Friday evening. The southbound lanes of the highway between St. Peter and Mankato were closed as of around 6pm Friday due to a mudslide. Traffic was re-routed to Highway 22. The closure lasted a little over an hour while the mudslide was cleaned up, and the highway has since been re-opened.
