CH 27 Reconstruction from CH 21 to CH 44

  • Construction Year: 2021
  • Community: Savage, Credit River
  • Corridor Served: CH 27
  • Project Lead: Scott County
Description
Expand existing two-lane rural section to a four-lane urban roadway consistent with the County Highway 27 Corridor Study between CH 21 and CH 44 in Credit River Township.

CH 27 is an important Minor-Arterial roadway serving eastern Scott County.  As part of the CH 27 Corridor Study, concepts were evaluated for the expansion of CH 27 to four-lanes with trail/sidewalk between CH 21 and CH 44 in Credit River Township.  The recommended Concept Layout (PDF) will help guide the development of a project currently programmed for construction in 2021.

Purpose and Justification
This project will improve safety and add capacity by providing turn lanes, center median, paved shoulders, and access management. This corridor also provides connectivity to two regional parks and currently has no trail/shoulder for bike or pedestrian movements.

CH 27 Corridor Study
The Final Report (PDF) is available for review and includes the findings and recommendations from the year-long corridor study. The report has been adopted by the city councils, township boards and County Board.
