Dakota County, in partnership with the City of Lakeville, is reconstructing 202nd Street to a 2-lane divided highway from Holyoke Avenue to Cedar Avenue (County Road 23). The project is in the preliminary design phase and scheduled for construction in 2019.
The 202nd Street West (County Road 50) corridor provides an east-west connection between Dodd Boulevard (County Road 9) and Cedar Avenue (County Road 23) within Lakeville. 202nd Street West also provides direct access to Lakeville City Hall and Public Safety, Quigley-Sime and Aronson parks, multiple residential neighborhoods, and downtown Lakeville.
202nd Street West is currently an undivided two lane rural roadway that has substantially deteriorated. The proposed project will reconstruct 202nd Street West from Holyoke Avenue to Cedar Avenue as a divided two-lane roadway with turn lanes at all public street intersections, trails along both sides of the roadway, and a trail underpass of County 50 just west of Highview Avenue.
Traffic control options are also being assessed at Holyoke Avenue and County 50 to ensure these intersections operate as safely and efficiently as possible.
