The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) will conduct aerial mapping of several locations in south central Minnesota this spring. The mapping will create a record of existing infrastructure and landscape along, and adjacent to, MnDOT right of way for transportation planning and operations.  This work must be conducted after the snow has melted and before the trees leaf out.

Work will begin in late March, weather permitting, in the following locations:

  • Highway 68, from Highway 15 south of New Ulm to Highway 169 near Mankato
  • Highway 19, from Highway 15 in Winthrop to Gaylord
  • Highway 264, from I-90 to Round Lake

MnDOT crews will paint large white “X” targets on paved road surfaces and place fabric “X” targets on unpaved surfaces and outside of public right of way.
