Dakota County will rehabilitate about 16.85 miles of pavement in 2023. 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 and improvements. Improvements will be made to some of the signal systems. The parking lots at the Dakota County Administrative Center in Hastings, the access road to Lebanon Hills Regional Park and Camp Sacajawea Retreat Center, parking lot at Thompson Park, and numerous trails will also be resurfaced.
Drivers should expect temporary lane closures, flaggers, and delays throughout the project. Please allow extra time for travel, watch for construction signage and be cautious while driving through the construction area. For the safety of both the residents and the workers, please be patient.
