Dakota County and the City of Lakeville are partnering on planning and design efforts for the reconstruction of Dodd Boulevard and construction of new County Road 9 (179th Street) in 2022. The two projects are the culmination of many years of planning and design efforts. A number of studies and projects have occurred with the Dodd Boulevard improvements and the new County Road 9 (179th Street) realignment in mind.
The scope of work includes preliminary engineering designs, surveying, traffic analysis, public participation and final engineering designs to serve as a basis for jurisdictional transfer between Dakota County and the City of Lakeville.
