Highway 169 Detour 07 Aug 14

A detour related to flood work on Highway 169 near St. Peter begins next week. Starting Monday, traffic from St. Peter to Le Sueur will be diverted along Broadway Ave., to County Road 20, to County Road 8, adding an extra four and a half miles to the commute. The project will raise two miles of the south–bound highway above the 100–year flood level. This first phase of the construction is expected to last about three weeks.
