Description


Scott County and MnDOT are in the concept development and design stage for an interchange at US Highway 169 and Trunk Highway (TH) 41/County Highway (CH) 78.  In addition, Scott County was successful in obtaining federal funding to expand the scope of the project to include a proposed overpass over US 169 near CH 14 and extension of the frontage road system along the east side of US 169 between CH 78 and CH 14.  The expectation is to begin construction in 2018. 
  
Additional information including notices for upcoming public meetings on the project will be posted on this page as it becomes available.
