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.
