History

State Highway 22 was authorized in 1920, 1933, and 1960.

The southernmost section of Highway 22 was added in 1933.

The section of Highway 22 between Mankato and St. Peter follows the original route of U.S. Highway 169. When the parallel route west of the Minnesota River was first completed in the late 1950s, it originally carried the Highway 22 designation for a few years until it was redesignated U.S. 169 and Highway 22 reverted to its original alignment.

From 1934 to 1961, the northern terminus for Highway 22 was at its intersection with State Highway 55 in Eden Valley. The Highway 22 designation was extended north to Richmond in 1961.

Highway 22 was paved in its entirety by 1953.

The new alignment section of Highway 22 on the southeast side of Mankato to U.S. Highway 14 was constructed circa 1990.
