CH 79 Trail Project

  • Estimated Construction Timeline: 2017
  • Community: Shakopee
  • Corridor Served: CH 79
  • Project Lead: Scott County
Description
A trail is anticipated to be constructed on the east side of County Highway (CH) 79 from CH 78 to CH 16 in the city of Shakopee.  A section of trail would also be constructed on the north side of CH 78 starting at CH 79 and continuing east to the existing trail recently constructed near CH 17.  The County held an Open House on June 17, 2015 at Jackson Township Hall. See the CH 79 Trail Project Newsletter (PDF).

Purpose & Justification

In 2014 Scott County was awarded federal funding to construct a section of trail along both County Highway (CH) 79 and CH 78 in 2017.  A trail would allow residents and children to walk or bike along these roads in a safer environment over existing conditions.
