Dakota County will rehabilitate approximately 16 miles of pavement as part of the overlays contract this construction season. Pavement rehabilitation involves removing and replacing asphalt, typically referred to as a “mill and overlay,” on the driving lanes and shoulders of the roadway. The end product will be a better looking, longer lasting and smoother roadway.
However, more than just pavement will be rehabilitated this season. Several signal systems will be replaced; a hybrid pedestrian beacon will be installed, and flashing yellow arrows will be added to several signal systems.
There will also be park improvements, miscellaneous concrete work, and minor utility adjustments and improvements.
Expect short delays and temporary lane closures. Signal systems may be on flashing red (all-way stop) temporarily for some of the construction activities. For the safety of both the residents and the workers, please be patient.
Project Timeline: April 29, 2013 – late September 2013
Work on the Dakota County overlay and signal projects is substantially complete with only minor repairs, maintenance and cleanup remaining. Thank you for your patience and cooperation throughout this construction season.
