Background

Hwy 13 between I-35W in Burnsville and Annapolis Street in West St. Paul

In 2012 most of the stretch of Hwy 13 between I-35W in Burnsville and Annapolis Street in West St. Paul was resurfaced, repaired and upgraded. Hwy 13 between Second Street and I-35E was not included in this work, but will be part of a 2015 construction project.

Hwy 13 / I-35E interchange

In 2011 a new traffic signal system was installed and turn lanes and sections of sidewalk were added near the Hwy 13/I-35E interchange. The signals increase safety and mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists while moving traffic through the intersection with the use of optimized signal timing and a flashing yellow arrow for left turns.

Traffic forecasts indicate that traffic would have backed up onto southbound I-35E by the year 2015 if traffic signals had not been installed.

All new pedestrian facilities areĀ ADA compliant.
