202nd Street (County Road 50) Reconstruction

Dakota County, in partnership with the City of Lakeville, is reconstructing 202nd Street to a 2-lane divided roadway from Holyoke Avenue to Cedar Avenue. For more details and to sign up to receive email updates on this project, go to Dakota County's website.

Project Overview


The project includes a roundabout at 202nd Street and Holyoke Avenue, traffic signal at 202nd Street and Cedar Avenue, dedicated turn lanes at intersections, a pedestrian underpass (with lighting) and trails along both sides of the roadway, and site distance improvements at Hamburg Avenue by lowering the intersection 11 feet.

Improvements to Aronson Park will also be completed with the project, including relocating access to the park to align with Heath Avenue, regrading soccer fields to add field space and improve drainage, improving parking, and constructing a stormwater re-use irrigation system. The stormwater re-use project will be completed through a partnership between the City, County and Vermillion River Watershed, including grant funding from the Board of Water and Soil Resources. 

The project is scheduled to begin in early April 2019 (weather permitting) and will be constructed in two phases. During each phase, the portion of 202nd Street under construction will be closed to traffic. Traffic will be detoured along Dodd Boulevard, 215th Street (County Road 70) and Cedar Avenue.

Phase 1: April to July 10, 2019


This phase includes improvements along 202nd Street between Holyoke Avenue and Highview Avenue, including the roundabout. Access to Aronson and Quigley-Sime Parks will remain at the current locations. Detour signs to the parks will be in place during construction. 

Phase 2: July 15 to November 2019


Following completion and opening of 202nd Street between Holyoke Avenue and Highview Avenue, including the roundabout, Phase 2 will include improvements along 202nd Street between Highview Avenue and Cedar Avenue. Access to Aronson and Quigley-Sime Parks will be at Highview Avenue only. Entry into Aronson Park will be provided through a roadway from Quigley-Sime Park. Detour signs to the parks will be in place during construction.
