ST. PETER, Minn. (KEYC) - The Minnesota Department of Transportation has decided on a solution to improve safety at the intersections connecting Highways 169, 22 and 99.
The highways connect the cities of Mankato and St. Peter.
MnDOT will create a dual left turn at the intersection of Highways 169 and 22 and a restricted crossing u-turn.
MnDOT said during a meeting with St. Peter City Council Monday that the concept will reduce right-angle crashes.
It will also improve capacity and improve the timing of signals to help with traffic flow.
The project is slated to begin in 2023.
