Highway 19 from Henderson to Highway 169 closed starting Sept. 25 for erosion repairs
Traffic detoured until late October
MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists traveling on Highway 19 east of Henderson to Highway 169 can expect a detour starting Monday, Sept. 25 for erosion repairs due to damage that occurred during spring flooding, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Minnesota River Valley flooding has created maintenance and travel challenges in the Henderson area. It’s necessary that these erosion repairs are made prior to construction on Highway 93 in 2024-2026 from Henderson to Highway 169 to raise the highway above the 100-year flood elevation.
Highway 19 east of Henderson will be closed to through-traffic. Traffic will be detoured to Highway 169 and Highway 93 until the work is complete in late October, weather permitting. Motorists traveling to the Ney Nature Center from Highway 169 may use Highway 19 to access the Center.
