Dakota County will rehabilitate about 15 miles of pavement this construction season. Pavement rehabilitation involves removing and replacing asphalt, also called a mill and overlay, on the driving lanes and shoulders of the roadway. The end product will be a better looking, longer lasting and smoother roadway.
However, more than just pavement will be rehabilitated this season. Other work will include miscellaneous concrete work and minor utility adjustments. Improvements will be made to some of the signal systems. Trails along several county roads and in Thompson Park will be resurfaced.
Expect short delays and temporary lane closures. Signal systems may be on flashing red (all-way stop) temporarily for some of the construction activities. Flagging operations may be used on some of the projects to move traffic through the area. For the safety of both the residents and the workers, please be patient.
