The Duluth Avenue Intersection Improvement Project includes widening the intersection to include dedicated left, thru, and right turn lanes on Duluth Avenue in both directions at the intersection with Highway 13. It also includes the addition of a right turn lane into the Holiday Station Store’s northerly entrance, the construction of a median on Duluth Avenue to restrict the access to the entrance for the Village Lake Mall to right-in/right-out near the intersection, the construction of a mini roundabout at the intersection of Duluth and Village Lake Drive, as well as modifications to several of the southerly entrances to the Village Lake Mall property and the realignment of the Toronto/Village Lake Drive intersection. The final plans were approved by the City Council on July 16, 2018 and authorization for advertising for bids was granted. Below is the construction staging:

Stage 1A: April 22 – June 7
Stage 1B/Stage 2A: June 10 – June 28
Stage 2B: July 1 - July 12
Stage 3 and final cleanup: July 15-July 26

If you have any questions at this stage, please contact us at or 952-737-4683.


Last week, the contractors worked on bringing the ground level in preparation for sod. They also laid the primary layer of blacktop. Nearly all of the sidewalk was poured, and the retaining walls were started. The traffic light system work continues. Weather permitting, the final layer of blacktop is scheduled for installation on Wednesday, June 26.
