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-July 10, 2019


Phase 2: July 22-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. As of November 6, the contractor is working to complete the final paving between Hamburg Avenue and Cedar Avenue over the next two weeks. There is no scheduled opening date at this point, however it is anticipated that CR 50 will be re-opened to traffic prior to Thanksgiving. More information will be forthcoming in the next few weeks as the schedule to complete the improvements is largely weather dependent. 

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.

The posted detour for County Road 50 traffic is Cedar Avenue south to County Road 70, then north on Dodd Boulevard. Detour signs will be in place during construction.
