Extreme wet weather conditions are prohibiting progress on the Highway 22 projects south of Mankato. Paving is complete, but the ditches are soaked preventing the completion of the remaining work until early November.
If weather cooperates, three legs of the new Highway 22 and Blue Earth County Road 90 roundabout could open to local traffic the week of October 22-27. Highway 22 south of the roundabout to Beauford requires more extensive work, but could be fully open to traffic in early November. Business access (including the Fall Festival) will continue to be provided via Terrace View Drive.
