Hwy 169 St. Peter

Broadway Avenue to Union Street

About this project

A significant pavement fix is planned on Hwy 169 from Broadway Ave. to Union St. (approximately half of a mile). In addition to replacing the pavement, the roadway will be reconfigured so the shoulders, turn lanes, and median widths match other sections of Hwy 169 through St. Peter (similar to the segment by Minnesota Square Park). This reconfiguration will provide better traffic flow and safer highway access.
