The County Highway 13 (Ideal Ave) reconstruction project between County Hwy 14 (34th
St) and 44th
St is well underway. The project will enter the final construction stage on Sept 16. At this time, Ideal Ave will reopen between 39th
St and Hidden Bay Trail while closing between Hidden Bay Trail and 44th
St. The final (stage) closure is expected to run to mid-October. During the (Hidden Bay to 44th
St) closure, access to Hidden Bay will be maintained, but will be available from the south. Likewise, access will be maintained to 44th
St from the north. Resident access between Hidden Bay and 44th
St will be from the north, but may be from the south at times depending on work in the area.
A detour is currently in place and is attached along with a staging map. Periodic updates are available on the project page à https://www.co.washington.mn.us/County13Phase2
UPDATE: October 11th, 2022
Final paving is expected to be completed on County Highway 13 (Ideal Ave) on Oct 12, weather dependent. We anticipate opening the road to traffic sometime during the day on Oct 13. This extra day is a buffer in the event that paving is not completed on Oct 12. When the road opens, there will be temporary pavement markings to indicate turn lanes and construction drums and channelizers to act as center striping until permanent pavement markings are installed (week of Oct 17).
Please be aware that work will continue in the area after paving and through the week of Oct 17.
