Dakota County is hosting an open house for County Road 78 in Castle Rock Township on Monday, March 11, 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Castle Rock Town Hall, 2537 240th Street West, Farmington.
Dakota County is proposing to reconstruct 240th Street to a paved 2-lane highway from Highway 3 to Blaine Avenue (County Road 79). The roadway is more than 60 years old and will require increased maintenance effort until it is reconstructed. Improving the roadway to current safety standards will reduce the risk for crashes. These improvements includes curves, sideslopes, shoulder width and adding turn lanes where needed. The project is in the preliminary design phase and scheduled for construction in 2020.
