County Road 13/Bavaria Road to close south of Hwy 5 in Victoria
Closure part of larger Hwy 5 project


(Roseville, Minn.) – Motorists travelling County Road 13/Bavaria Road south of Hwy 5 in Victoria will encounter delays when the road is closed between Hwy 5 and 78th Street at 5 a.m. Tuesday, May 15.


A signed detour will direct travelers along 78th Street.


County Road 13/Bavaria Road will reopen by June 29th.


The one-block long closure is needed as crews reconstruct a section of road, extend the right turn lane and replace utilities beneath the roadway.


The work is part of a larger project to improve Hwy 5 between Victoria and Chanhassen. To sign up for the project’s Email Updates or for more information visit the project’s web site at All residences and businesses will remain accessible during the project.


When complete, the project will resurface and widen shoulders on four miles of busy highway, improve bike and pedestrian facilities, increase roadway efficiency by adding turn lanes at busy intersections, improve drainage and result in a smoother ride.
