Highway 55 detour beginning next week
Dakota County, the City of Rosemount and the Minnesota Department of Transportation are planning safety and efficiency improvements to Highway 55 at the intersections of County Road 42 as well as Fahey Avenue.
This project will consist of adding a dedicated left turn lane on westbound Highway 55 onto County Road 42 and dedicated left turn lane on eastbound Highway 55 onto Fahey Avenue. The roadway ditches will be graded to divert and infiltrate stormwater runoff to help improve water quality. The project is expected to be done in early November.
Starting next week, a detour will be necessary to travel. The route will be Goodwin Avenue south to County Road 46 west to Highway 52 northbound. A temporary signal system will be installed at the Goodwin Avenue/Highway 55 intersection.
