2018 Prior Lake Road Construction

This year there will be five street projects that will affect local streets as well as county and state highways.

CH 42/TH 13
Starting in April, Scott County will be making improvements to the county highway (CH) 42, state trunk highway (TH) 13 intersection. This project will install dual left turn lanes on CH 42, install permanent signals on CH 42/TH 13 and CH 42/Quebec, road surfacing and install trail/sidewalk along CH 42. Visit the county CH42/TH13 web page for more information.

TH 13/Duluth/Village Lake Drive
The City is collaborating with MnDOT to improve the traffic flow at the intersection by adding dedicated left turn lanes in both directions on Duluth and replacing the traffic signal. The project is currently in the Design phase which also includes a mini- roundabout at the intersection of Duluth Avenue and Village Lake Drive. Construction will occur in the late summer and fall. See the feasibility report for more information or visit the city street projects page at cityofpriorlake.com/streetprojects.

TH 13 Overlay
The Minnesota Department of Transportation will mill and overlay the pavement on TH 13 from CH 21 north to TH101 in Savage. Lane restrictions will be in place during the road work. For more information, visit the state highway projects page or call Kristen Klein 651-234-7506.

Franklin Trail (Summer St. to CH 44)
This area is currently in the design phase of the project where plans and specifications are in preparation. As proposed this area is scheduled for a complete reconstruction in 2018. This includes removing and replacing the street, storm sewer, sanitary sewer and watermain.

Next year will be another very busy road construction year for Prior Lake. MnDot will be reconstructing TH 13 from CH 21 south to CH 282. The state will also be collaborating with Scott County and the City of Prior Lake on the CH 21/TH 13 (downtown) intersection improvement project. This project will extend from Franklin Trail to Duluth along CH 21. It will include roundabouts at Arcadia and TH 13. The project has entered the final design phase which will determine how the project will be built. The fourth open house will be this spring.
