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. 

Phase 1: April to July 10, 2019

 - COMPLETED
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 1 (continued): July 15 to July 22, 2019


County Road 50 will be closed to all traffic from east of the Holyoke Avenue roundabout to Highview Avenue to complete Phase 1 improvements. The Holyoke Avenue roundabout will remain open, but reduced to a single lane in all directions. Access to Quigley-Sime and Aronson Parks (from the west) will be maintained at Highview Avenue, via Heritage Drive.  Access to Quigley-Sime and Aronson Parks (from the east) will be maintained along County Road 50. Phase 1 improvements will be substantially complete on July 22 and open to the public.

Phase 2: July 22 to November 2019


County Road 50 will be closed to all traffic from just east of the Highview Avenue intersection to Cedar Avenue during this time. Phase 2 is tentatively scheduled to be completed on November 1st. 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.
