Help Dakota County and its partners celebrate the new pedestrian underpass at Highway 110 in Mendota Heights with a grand opening event on Oct. 27.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 11:30 a.m. on the north side of the underpass at Highway 110 and Dodd Road. The event will feature guest speakers, including Dakota County Commissioner Tom Egan.
Construction was completed on the $2.5 million project to build the box culvert underpass and half-mile trail segment that is part of the 8.5-mile greenway that will directly connect Mendota Heights to Lebanon Hills Regional Park when completed. The underpass and trail will provide for safe, continuous travel of non-motorized users across a high-speed, high-volume roadway.
There is a median opening in the 120-foot underpass to allow natural light in for better visibility. It also provides users with a direct and safe connection to the Village at Mendota Heights and the Parirview Plaza.
The project was part of a collaborative effort between Dakota County, the city of Mendota Heights, and local stakeholders including the Dodge Nature Center, Villages at Mendota Heights, Parirview Plaza, and Dakota County Community Development Agency.
