Temporary signs and traffic barrels will be placed in Dakota County to remind drivers about the dangers of illegally passing on the shoulders of roads.
The signs and barrels will go up on Cliff Road (County Road 32) at North Hay Lake Road the week of Oct. 9. They will remain up for about a week.
Police in Eagan are also increasing enforcement to emphasize to motorists that passing on the shoulder is neither legal nor safe. Passing on the shoulder is dangerous for pedestrians and traffic turning onto side roads. Dakota County and the city of Eagan are working together to increase awareness and public safety.
