Dodd Boulevard/New County Road 9 (179th Street)

Dakota County and the City of Lakeville are planning the reconstruction of Dodd Boulevard and construction of new County Road 9 (179th Street) in 2022. The improvements will be consistent with the findings of the County Road 9/179th Street Corridor Study, which was completed in 2019.

Proposed Improvements and Objectives

  • Promote active public participation and community pride, by learning the public’s views, perspectives and preferences for the corridors.
  • Meet the long-term multi-modal needs of the County and City, while improving safety and mobility along the corridor for all users.
  • Improve east-west access throughout southern Dakota County between the Cities of Lakeville and Farmington.
