State Highway 169 near US Highway 14

Mankato, MinnesotaApr 02, 20051 Comments

Leaving Mankato on Hwy 169 towards St. Peter, just as you pass under Hwy 14 there is the big gas station/Happy Chef parking lot on your leFort The cops will sit on the very broad driveway into this parking lot and you won’t hardly see them after dark. When coming into Mankato you get one sign letting you know the speed is dropping from 65 to 55. Not necessarily unreasonable in the day but at night it’s wide open and 169 is very much like an interstate setup, speed of traffic is usually closer to 70.

Northbound on 169 after the #14 bridge there is no "speed trap" actually. There is a speed change there which occurs north of the congested area. While most people know that the speed actually changes at the sign, usually they speed up when they first see the sign and hence the problem. South bound into the conjested areas by higway 14 the speed change IS clearly marked, but as in any "speed trap" if you are not paying attenion to your driving, you may get stopped just like with any other infraction. Get off the phone and drive, please.
