Dakota County is proposing to reconstruct County Road 88 in Randolph Township from Highway 56 to Highway 52.
County Road 88 is an east-west collector roadway in Randolph and Sciota townships. County Road 88 serves as the primary roadway through the City of Randolph and connects residential, commercial and agricultural properties in the city and townships to Cannon Falls.
The purpose of the project is to improve safety, mobility and pavement quality on County Road 88 in the segment between Highway 56 and Fullerton Road. County Road 88 is currently a 2-lane roadway. The existing road has minimal paved shoulders, no turn lanes and multiple curves with advisory speeds below the posted speed limit.
In addition, County Road 88 currently intersects Highway 56 at a skew near a railroad crossing, which has led to several crashes. To more effectively meet the project purpose, a preliminary design phase is being conducted to evaluate ways to address the issues and existing deficiencies along the corridor.
On Aug. 21, 2018, the Dakota County Board of Commissioner adopted Alignment B2 and Intersection H2 for the project.
