Northbound Hwy 13 closing June 29-July 2
Resurfacing work continues


ROSEVILLE, Minn. –  Motorists will encounter delays and a detour when northbound Hwy 13 closes between Interstate 35W and Cliff Road in Burnsville at 8 p.m. Friday, June 29.

A signed detour will direct motorists to northbound 35W to Cliff Road in order to bypass the closure.  Access to local business will be maintained for the duration of the closure.

In addition, the intersection to northbound Hwy 13 from Nicollet Avenue, Portland Avenue and County Road 11 will be closed. 

The road is scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, July 2.

The work is part of the 12-mile-long Hwy 13 Better Roads project. When complete, the project will result in a smoother ride, improved drainage and upgraded pedestrian crossings and signals that meet modern accessibility standards.
