Minnesota State Highway 120 (MN 120) is a highway in Minnesota, which runs from its interchange with Interstate Highway 94 in Maplewood (near Landfall) and continues north to its northern terminus at its intersection with State Highway 244 and Ramsey County Road 15 at the White Bear Lake / Mahtomedi boundary line. The route is 8 miles (13 km) in length.
Highway 120 is also known as Century Avenue, Geneva Avenue, and Division Street at various points throughout its route.
Highway 120 serves as a north–south route between the communities of Maplewood, Oakdale, North St. Paul, White Bear Lake, and Mahtomedi.
Highway 120 mostly parallels I-694 throughout its route. Highway 120 also has an interchange with I-694 at the White Bear Lake / Mahtomedi boundary line.
The route is legally defined as Route 117 in the Minnesota Statutes. It is not marked with this number.
Highway 120 was numbered as a derivative of Highway 100.
The state began turning the route over to Washington and Ramsey counties in 2001. The portion of the route south of I-94 has been removed, but the rest of the highway is still marked and the legal definition of its legislative route has not been changed.
At one time, Highway 120 had continued farther south. Before 2002, the route had continued south of I-94 on present day County 72 / County 25 (the Maplewood / Woodbury boundary line) until reaching Valley Creek Road in Woodbury. Highway 120 then briefly followed Valley Creek Road (present day County 16) eastbound until its interchange with I-494.
