Route description[edit]

Highway 254 serves as a short north–south route in south-central Minnesota between the town of Frost and Interstate 90.

The route is legally defined as Route 254 in the Minnesota Statutes.[3]

History[edit]

MN 254 was authorized on July 1, 1949.[1] Originally, it traveled from U.S. Route 16 (US 16) south through Frost to Iowa Highway 322 (renumbered 254 in 1969) at the state line near Rake, Iowa.

The route was paved between US 16 and Frost in 1950.[4][5] The remainder was paved in the mid-1950s.[6][7]

The part of MN 254 south of Frost was removed from statute in 1988 and turned back to Faribault County.[8] It is now marked County Road 17.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Faribault County.
