Dakota County, in cooperation with the City of Eagan, will reconstruct Cliff Road (County Road 32) from Lexington Avenue (County Road 43) to 0.2 miles east of Dodd Road in Eagan. The project will address safety concerns at the intersection of Cliff Road and Dodd Road, accommodate increasing traffic volumes, create a multi-modal corridor safe for pedestrians and provide improvements that are compatible with the natural and built surroundings.
The project will reconstruct Cliff Road (County Road 32) into a two-lane divided roadway utilizing a raised center median, 8-foot shoulders, curb and gutter and 10-foot shared-use trails on each side of the roadway. The reconstruction will include:
- Turn lanes at public intersections
- A signal modification at Lexington Avenue (County Road 43)
- A roundabout at the intersection of Cliff Road and Dodd Road
- Drainage improvements
- Retaining walls
