Highway 68 slope repair work to take place near County Road 24

MANKATO, Minn. — ]Motorists can expect to encounter minor road restrictions on Highway 68 near Blue Earth County Road 24 (south of Courtland) beginning the week of April 27 as crews work to repair a slope and a ravine that have been damaged from past rain events.

Weather permitting, the project should take about three weeks with only temporary but limited traffic interruptions as the worksite is accessed by construction vehicles and activities related to the slope and ravine repair.
Motorists are advised to slow down, use caution and watch for workers and equipment when traveling through the area.

Following guidance from state health officials and to prevent further spread of COVID-19, MnDOT crews will maintain social distancing practices while working.
