Dakota County, in cooperation with the City of Lakeville, is reconstructing 202nd Street West (County Road 50) from Holyoke Avenue to Cedar Avenue (County Road 23).
The 202nd Street West (County Road 50) corridor provides an east-west connection between Dodd Boulevard (County Road 9) and Cedar Avenue (County Road 23) within Lakeville. 202nd Street West also provides direct access to Lakeville City Hall and Public Safety, Quigley-Sime and Aronson parks, multiple residential neighborhoods, and downtown Lakeville.
202nd Street West (County Road 50) is currently an undivided two lane rural roadway that has substantially deteriorated. This project will reconstruct 202nd Street West from Holyoke Avenue to Cedar Avenue as a divided two-lane roadway with turn lanes at all public street intersections, trails along both sides of the roadway, and a trail underpass of County 50 just west of Highview Avenue.
Traffic control options were assessed at the intersection of Holyoke Avenue and County 50 and County 23 and County Road 50 to ensure these intersections operate as safely and efficiently as possible. A multilane roundabout is planned at the Holyoke Avenue and County 50 intersection and a traffic signal at the County 23 and 50 intersection.
Work on the roadway will be completed in two stages. Stage 1 work from west of Holyoke Avenue to east of Highview Avenue will occur between April and early July. Stage 2 work from east of Highview Avenue to Cedar Avenue is scheduled from mid-July to November.
