Route description[edit]

State Highway 83 serves as a north–south route in south-central Minnesota between Waldorf, Pemberton, St. Clair, and Mankato.

The highway is legally defined as Legislative Route 201 in the Minnesota Statutes.[1] It is not marked with this number.

History[edit]

State Highway 83 was authorized in 1933 and completely paved by 1953.[2]

At one time, Highway 83 had continued farther west. The section of present-day State Highway 68 between U.S. Highway 169 (at Mankato) and State Highway 15 (immediately south of New Ulm) was originally designated Highway 83 as well between 1934 and 1963. Highway 83 was originally marked as an east–west route by its highway shields from beginning to end.[2]
