Dakota County, the City of Rosemount and the City of Apple Valley are planning improvements to County Road 38 (McAndrews Road) from County Road 31 (Pilot Knob Road) to Highway 3.
This section of County Road 38 will be converted to a 3-lane highway with a center left turn lane while maintaining 8-foot shoulders. In addition, dedicated right turn lanes will be added at all intersecting roadways. These modifications will provide important safety improvements and increase efficiency along the corridor.
Project timeline: May 24–October 2018

County Road 38 will remain open to local traffic throughout the majority of construction. Traffic is currently shifted to the south half of the roadway. Driving lanes may be as narrow as 10.5 feet in width. The speed limit on County Road 38 between County Road 31 and Highway 3 will be reduced to 45 miles per hour.
Road closures will be necessary to replace the drainage culverts crossing under the roadway in several locations. A detour route using County Road 31 (Pilot Knob Road) to County Road 32 (Cliff Road) to Highway 3 will be posted during these closures. This work is expected to take less than two weeks to complete. These closures are tentatively scheduled for mid to late August.
The contractor will be moving dirt along the north side of the roadway. Storm sewer installation continues along the north side of the road near Danbury Way. Placing gravel may begin on sections of road that have been widened.
Schedules are subject to change due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
