Dakota County, in cooperation with the City of Eagan, is working to complete a corridor study of Cliff Road (County Road 32) from Lexington Avenue to Trunk Highway 3 in Eagan.
The corridor study will include review of current and forecasted traffic operations, potential for any future roadway and/or intersection improvements, trail locations along the corridor, pedestrian crossings and the location for a grade separated crossing of County Road 32 for the Mendota Lebanon Hills Greenway.
Survey crews working along Cliff Road
Crews will be surveying the study corridor from Lexington Avenue to Robert Trail (Highway 3) over the next few weeks. The Cliff Road Study phase is still ongoing and survey information will aid in the refinement of alternatives and final recommendations. In addition, the survey information collected will serve the preliminary and final design once the Cliff Road Study final recommendations are complete.
Soil borings will be collected in order to understand soil conditions along the corridor and to determine if special considerations will need to be taken. The borings are scheduled to begin the week of July 1 and continue into the following week. No roadway closures are scheduled, but temporary shoulder closures are expected. All survey work and soil borings will occur within city/county right-of-way.
The project team is using the public input provided through outreach methods. The survey collection and soil borings represents continued progress.
Community open house planned for late summer/early fall
An open house will be scheduled late summer/early fall to review recommended improvements and an implementation plan.
