Temporary signs and traffic barrels will be placed on McAndrews Road (County Road 38) at Dorchester Trail the week of Aug. 21 to warn drivers about illegally passing traffic on the shoulder of roads.
Police in Apple Valley are increasing enforcement to advise motorists that this is not legal or safe.
Passing on the shoulder is dangerous for pedestrians and traffic turning onto side roads. Dakota County and the city of Apple Valley are working together to increase awareness and public safety. The signs will be up for about a week.
