Fiber project to disrupt traffic in industrial park
Watch for lane closures and additional traffic disruptions for two fiber projects in the eastern portion of the Valley Green Industrial Park. Universal Services crews will be upgrading fiber along Valley Industrial Boulevard South (south side), Valley Industrial Boulevard North, Innovation Boulevard, Park Place, Valley Park Drive and Citation Drive. Work has been slowed by weather but should be completed by mid-March. Restoration will take place in the spring.
Vierling Drive closed west of Taylor Street
Vierling Drive is closed between the mall entrance and Taylor Street through the winter. This section of Vierling Drive will be constructed and completed in summer 2018.
Sewer project impacts trail traffic along Highway 101
With work continuing on the Metropolitan Council Environmental Services sewer improvement project, the Blue Lake Wastewater Treatment Plant in Shakopee is temporarily re-directing all plant traffic to its west gate. Due to limited visibility at this gate for bicyclists on the Minnesota Valley State Trail along Highway 101 and drivers leaving the plant, bicyclists are encouraged to heed stop signs when approaching the plant.
Gas line restoration work delayed until spring 2018
Earlier this fall, Michaels Pipeline completed maintenance to a high-pressure natural gas line through several Shakopee properties. CenterPoint Energy also replaced gas lines to 37 properties. Restoration of yards will be completed in May 2018.
Pedestrian bridge at Memorial Park removed
The Minnesota Valley State Trail's Mill Pond channel pedestrian crossing is closed. The bridge, located on the northern edge of Memorial Park, has been removed. The city is working with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and other partners to explore options for repairing, replacing or completely removing the bridge.
