The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), in cooperation with Dakota County, Scott County, the City of Burnsville and the City of Savage, has initiated a study to update the Trunk Highway (TH) 13 Corridor Study from TH 13/TH 101 in Savage to Nicollet Avenue in Burnsville. This technical memorandum documents the purpose of the TH 13 Corridor Study Update and the Corridor Vision.
Since the initial TH 13 Corridor Study was completed in 2000, significant investments have been made and the project partners have achieved success in advancing their shared vision for the corridor. However, the study was conducted more than a decade ago, and economic forecasts and growth trends have shifted from what was once predicted. In addition, there has been a decrease in transportation funding both at the state and federal levels. Because of this, a thorough review of the corridor and future needs is not only appropriate, but necessary to ensure continued investments truly reflect the maximum return on investment in the way of improved safety, mobility, and economic vitality along the corridor.
The MnDOT website has more complete information on this study.
