– Star Tribune file

MnDOT re-striped Hwy. 169 over the weekend from the Bloomington Ferry Bridge to Pioneer Trail and returned it to its original configuration with two lanes.

Drivers who use northbound Hwy. 169 in Bloomington will notice they have one fewer lane to use. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) re-striped the highway over the weekend from the Bloomington Ferry Bridge to Pioneer Trail and returned it to its original configuration with two lanes.

MnDOT added an extra northbound lane on the shoulder of Hwy. 169 in the spring when flooding forced the closure of Hwy. 41 in Chaska, one of the few places motorists in the south metro can cross the Minnesota River. The shoulder lane on Hwy. 169 helped accommodate additional traffic during that time.
