On Tuesday, June 8, a section of Old Highway 169 buckled as a result of several days of extreme heat.
According to MnDot, when air temperature changes from moderate to extreme heat, the pavement material can expand and then buckle. This more commonly occurs on older concrete pavements.
Crews responded to the damage near Belle Plaine around 4 p.m. Tuesday and finished repairs on Wednesday morning.
If you come across a buckle, MnDot recommends slowing down, moving to another lane, and calling 911. Drivers should avoid going over a buckle if possible.
