Watch for lane closures in industrial park
Crews will be upgrading fiber to portions of the Valley Green Industrial Park, which may result in intermittent lane closures through early April. Crews will be working along the east side of Valley Park Drive, south side of Valley Industrial Boulevard South and the south side of Valley Industrial Boulevard North from Valley Park Drive to Citation Drive.
Lanes closed on Canterbury Road near Highway 101
The right lane of Highway 83 (Canterbury Road) is closed for both the north and southbound traffic near Highway 101 as part of the County Highway 83 Intersection Improvements at 4th Avenue project. The county anticipates these lanes to remain closed for the duration of the project to maintain a safe work zone. The Fourth Avenue intersection will remain open until late May/early June.
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.
