Construction begins in May 2019!

Check back often for the most up to date project information!
Check out the general staging schedule and detour information below.
Project Staging, Detour, and Schedule
Construction of the Moving Forward 13-21 project will be broken into two main stages – each stage will be further broken down into phases so that the entire roadway is not closed at one time. Check out the staging and detour information below! You can also view the detour and project area on the project comment map.
What is construction staging? The sequencing of work, or the steps that need to be taken during construction in order to build a project. A construction schedule is based on May to October as the “normal” construction season in Minnesota, with 5-6 working days each week (not including holidays). Common considerations include: safety to the public and construction crews; key routes; regional and local detours; access into and out of a destination or area; emergency service access; utility needs; and special community events.
How will this get built?
Construction of CH 21 and TH 13 will be broken into two stages – each stage will be further broken down into phases so that the entire roadway is not closed at one time. Please review the following documents to see when different stages of the project will be under construction.
