Route description[edit]

Highway 269 begins at the South Dakota state line as a continuation of SD 11. It runs in rural southwest Minnesota along the RockPipestone county line for most of its length. The highway juts slightly north into Pipestone County after entering the city of Jasper. It ends at an intersection with MN 23, known as Railroad Avenue, in the southern part of Jasper.[3][4][5] Highway 269 follows West Wall Street in Jasper, and is also known as 1st Street within Pipestone County.[5]

The route is legally defined as Route 269 in the Minnesota Statutes.[6] No part of the highway is included in the National Highway System,[7] a system of highways important to the nation's defense, economy, and mobility.[8]
