The southbound lanes of Highway 169 between Mankato and St. Peter are now opened. They opened around 5 Thursday night.

The Highway 169 southbound lanes closed Wednesday morning as mudslides began during the heavy rains and continued into the night.  Northbound Highway 169 has remained open.

Other Highways that remain closed:
