Community: Shakopee, Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC)
Corridor Served: CH 16
Project Lead: Scott County
Partners: City of Shakopee, SMSC
The project was awarded to Chard Tiling & Excavating, Inc., and construction for the entire project is expected to be complete the end of November 2016.
As of October 25, 2016, County Highway 16 is open to traffic. Expect lane closures until the end of November while the contractor completes the project.
Expand existing two-lane rural section to a four-lane urban roadway consistent with the County Highway 16 Corridor Study between Dean Lakes Trail and CH 21. A pavement reclamation/resurfacing of the existing four-lane segment between CH 83 and Dean Lakes Trail will also occur as part of the project. A study of the segment between CH 21 and CH 18 was also completed to evaluate changes in roadway geometries (no changes recommended at this time).
Purpose & Justification
With the completion of the CH 21 extension, CH 16 has become more important as an east-west connection between CH 83 and the new CH 21. Safety issues will be addressed by this project.
