Description


The County Highway (CH) 8 reconstruction project includes the addition of turn lanes, bypass lanes, a roundabout at CH 8/CH 91, a frontage road between France Blvd and the existing Lucerne Trail, and a trail extending along Dakota County Highway 70 east to Keswick Loop.

Purpose & Justification


The purpose of this project is to improve safety of this rural connector road. The project includes the addition of left/right turn lanes at intersections, wider paved shoulders, and an off-road trail.  Pavement conditions have deteriorated in this segment due to sub-base conditions and are in need of reconstruction.
