The public can comment on an environmental assessment worksheet for the County Road 26 and County Road 63 improvement project in Eagan and Inver Grove Heights.
The project would expand about 2 miles of County Road 26 (Lone Oak Road/70th Street) from Highway 55 (Courthouse Boulevard) to Highway 3 (South Robert Trail) from an existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane divided highway. The roadway will include turn lanes, improved stormwater management infrastructure and multi-use trails on both sides of the roadway.
The County Road 63 construction will be a new alignment and include two lanes, stormwater infrastructure and trails on both sides of the roadway. A new roundabout will be constructed at County Road 26 and the realigned County Road 63. Construction is planned to begin in summer 2021 and last through the 2023 construction season.
The environmental assessment worksheet is on the project website at https://www.cr26andcr63improvements.com. It is available in hard copy upon request.
A virtual open house will be posted from May 14–21 to the project website, which will include information about the worksheet, project and construction.
Written comments on the environmental assessment worksheet will be accepted until June 3. They can be submitted via the project website or directed to:
