Hwy 93 Open from Hwy 169 to Henderson 11 Jul 18

MANKATO, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation opened Highway 93 from Highway 169 to Henderson at 8:30 a.m. this morning (Wednesday).

That stretch of Highway 93 was closed since July 8 due to flooding of the Minnesota River.

To minimize damage to the saturated road bed, MnDOT has placed a 7-ton axle weight restriction on this stretch of Highway 93. The weight restriction is anticipated to remain in place for approximately two weeks.

Motorists are advised to drive with caution as crews continue to work off the shoulder to establish erosion control and stabilize the surrounding area.

While Highway 93 from Highway 169 to Henderson has opened, Highway 19 east of Henderson is still closed due to the Minnesota River flood impacts.
