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.

The project will start April 22, weather dependent and we will provide updates as plans progress. If you have any questions at this stage, please contact us at or 952-737-4683.


City staff, MnDOT and Scott County staff have developed a construction schedule that will reduce the impact of this project with the local businesses in the Village Lake area.  Construction is expected to start April 22 depending on weather. The first phase of the project will include the roundabout at Village Lake Drive and Duluth Ave. For at least 6 weeks’ construction time, this intersection will be closed and a detour will be in place. Please note that the intersection at Highway 13 and Duluth Ave will not be closed during the project.

The proposed construction staging for Highway 13 this year involves starting at the southern limits and working north in short segments.  The segment of Highway 13 at Duluth is not scheduled for construction until late June or early July.  The intent will be to start the construction of Duluth Avenue in mid April, weather permitting, and be substantially complete with the construction prior to that segment of Highway 13 being closed.

The current schedule for the County Road 21 and Highway 13 intersection project anticipates construction starting in July.  This schedule will also work well with the proposed timing for the Duluth project being substantially complete by then.
