Date Change: Hwy 13 closing June 12-22
Resurfacing work continues


ROSEVILLE, Minn. –  Motorists will encounter delays and a detour as  both directions of Hwy 13 close between Yankee Doodle Road and Pilot Knob Road at 7 a.m. Tuesday, June 12.

A signed detour will direct motorists to Yankee Doodle Road and Pilot Knob Road to bypass the closure.  Access to local business will be maintained for the duration of the closure.

The road is scheduled to reopen by 7 p.m. Friday, June 22.

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.
