The Minnesota Department of Transportation and Scott County invite the public to review the Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) for the Highway 169, Highway 41, County Highway 78 and County Highway 14 Intersection Improvement Project in Jackson and Louisville Townships.
The proposed project includes construction of an interchange at the existing signalized Highway 169 and Highway 41/County Highway 78 intersection and a new overpass near the existing Highway 169 and Highway 14 intersection. The project also includes construction of frontage roads parallel to Highway 169, pedestrian/bicycle accommodations and stormwater treatment.
The EAW document states the purpose and need of the project along with the anticipated social, economic and environmental impacts. Beginning April 17, copies of the EAW are available for public viewing during business hours at the following locations:
– Scott County Highway Department, 600 Country Trail East, Jordan.
– Shakopee Public Library, 235 Lewis Street.
The EAW is also available for viewing on the project website at https://www.scottcountymn.gov/608/US-169-TH-41CH-78-Interchange-Design-Pro.
