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 shifted to the north 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.
Grading and storm sewer installation continues in areas off the roadway. Paving driveways and side streets will occur during the early part of the week of Oct. 15. The contractor will be placing topsoil and seeding.
Paving the final surface on County Road 38 is tentatively scheduled for the week of Oct. 22. Work includes removing about one inch from the existing pavement in the original driving lanes. About two inches of new asphalt will be paved across the full width of the roadway.
Schedules are subject to change due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
