Highway 13 weekend road closure scheduled in Savage and Burnsville Aug. 12-15

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists traveling in Savage and Burnsville will encounter a full closure of Highway 13 beginning Friday, Aug. 12 while crews work on culverts and other items related to a new interchange at Dakota Avenue.

Beginning at 7 p.m., Friday, Aug. 12, Highway 13 will be closed in both directions between Quentin Avenue and Highway 101. Motorists should follow the signed detour using Highway 169, I-494 and I-35W to bypass the closure. Local access for Ports of Savage will be maintained during the project.

Highway 13 will remain in a head-to-head traffic configuration after the weekend closure is lifted at 5 a.m., Monday, Aug. 15.

The lane and road closures are part of a larger project where crews are building a new interchange, including a Highway 13 bridge over Dakota Avenue and access ramps. Once construction is complete the new interchange will help to reduce traffic backups and improve safety. Work on the entire project is expected to wrap up in fall 2023.
