Overnight Hwy 13 lane closures continue in Eagan

Crews continue to resurface the roadway


ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists may experience delays as Highway 13 is reduced to a single lane between Yankee Doodle Road and Silver Bell Road Sunday, Aug. 5.


Southbound Highway 13 will be single lane beginning at 8 p.m. Aug. 5 and 6 as crews resurface the roadway.  The intersections at Yankee Doodle and Blackhawk Road may also close where crews are present.


All lanes are scheduled to reopen each day by 5 a.m.


The work is part of the 12-mile-long Highway 13 Better Roads project. When complete on Aug. 10, the project will result in a smoother ride, improved drainage and upgraded pedestrian crossings and signals that meet modern accessibility standards.
