Dakota County, in cooperation with the cities of Inver Grove Heights and Eagan, is proposing to expand County Road 26 (Lone Oak Road/70th Street West) from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane divided roadway from Highway 55 (Courthouse Boulevard) in Eagan to Highway 3 (South Robert Trail) in Inver Grove Heights.
The project will reconstruct County Road 63 (Argenta Trail) as a two-lane divided roadway on a new alignment from Amana Trail to the newly constructed 65th Street in Inver Grove Heights. A roundabout is being proposed at the intersection of County Road 26 and County Road 63 as well as additional turn lanes, drainage improvements, curb and gutter, multi-use trails, and an underpass serving the Mendota-Lebanon Greenway system.
The project will accommodate increasing traffic volumes and improve safety in a developing area of Dakota County.
