Flooding Causes Road Closures Near Gustavus

Posted on June 22nd, 2014 by

ThumbprintDue to flooding in Southern Minnesota, several roads including Highways 169, 22, and 99 have been affected in and around St. Peter. Anybody traveling to Gustavus should visit the website 511mn.org for the latest information and the best route to the College.

The College will remain open and is looking forward to hosting summer athletic and academic programs as well as visitors for Minnesota Private College Week.

UPDATE: If you are traveling to Gustavus from the Twin Cities on Highway 169 southbound, here is the fastest route to the College: When you are forced to exit 169 in Le Sueur, take a right at the top of the ramp. Continue on County Road 8/336th St. for approximately one mile before turning left on County Road 20. Continue on County Road 20 for approximately 10 miles before turning left on Broadway Avenue. Travel less than a half mile on Broadway before turning right on Sunrise Drive. This will take you to the College’s northwest entrance near the St. Peter High School football field.

If you are traveling to Gustavus from the south near Mankato, Highways 169 and 22 from Mankato to St. Peter are now open. The Highway 99 bridge coming into St. Peter from the east remains closed.
