The County Highway (CH) 8 reconstruction project included the addition of turn lanes, bypass lanes, a roundabout at CH 8/CH 91, a frontage road between France Blvd and the existing Lucerne Trail, and a trail extending along Dakota County Highway 70 east to Keswick Loop.
Purpose & Justification
The purpose of this project was to improve safety of this rural connector road. The project included the addition of left/right turn lanes at intersections, wider paved shoulders, and an off-road trail. Pavement conditions had deteriorated in this segment due to sub-base conditions and were in need of reconstruction.
