Public Input Sought on Highway System Plan

Plan aims to make highway system more accessible to disabled residents.

Dakota County is seeking public input to identify ways to make the county highway system more accessible to residents with disabilities.

Dakota County is currently developing a transition plan to ensure the highway system, including roads, sidewalks and adjacent trails, meets the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The plan will guide the county as it continues to provide accessibility to its transportation infrastructure.

In order to involve the public in the plan and receive feedback, several open houses will be held Nov. 3-14 at different locations throughout the county. The open houses will provide the public with information about the project and the work the county has already done. Comments gathered at the open houses will help identify priority areas of improvement to the highway system.

Open houses will be held on the following dates:

  • Thursday, Nov. 3, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Dakota County Western Service Center Atrium, 14955 Galaxie Ave., Apple Valley
  • Wednesday, Nov. 9, 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Wentworth Library, 199 E Wentworth Ave., West St. Paul
  • Monday, Nov.14, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Dakota County Community Development Agency, 1228 Town Centre Dr., Eagan.

For more information about services offered to residents with disabilities, please visit www.co.dakota.mn.us and search Aging & Disability Services. Accommodations at the open houses can be made for residents with disabilities. For more information or questions, please contact Scott Peters, senior planner, at 952-891-7027 or scott.peters@co.dakota.mn.us
