Approximately five miles of Dakota County Road 9 (Dodd Boulevard) and Scott County Road 2 (Deuce Road/Dodd Boulevard) will be reconstructed. This project is the reconstruction between Scott County Road 46 in New Market Township and Dakota County Road 70 in Lakeville. In addition, a roundabout will be constructed at the Scott County 2/County Road 46 intersection in New Market Township.
Work in 2014 will include construction of the roundabout at the Scott County Road 2/County Road 46 intersection, box culvert replacement on Dakota County Road 9 approximately 500 feet north of 240th Street, and private utility relocation (gas, telephone, electric, etc.) and tree removal as necessary will occur throughout the project.
The 2015 construction season will include the reconstruction of Dakota County Road 9 and Scott County Road 2 east of the new roundabout. The reconstructed roadway will be a little wider than the existing roadway, but it will still be a two-lane road. Turn lanes or bypass lanes will be added at intersections and the shoulders will be paved.
Project Timeline: Sept. 2, 2014 – November 2015
