September 21, 2021: Plans and activities are moving forward for the County to re-advertise for construction bidding later this calendar year for construction beginning spring 2022. 

In advance of the construction project, utility work was completed throughout 2021; this work wrapped up last week.

Purpose & Justification

The purpose of the project is to address existing operational and safety issues for existing conditions and future development as well to support economic development along the A-Minor Arterial corridor. CH 83 is one of few minor arterial roadways providing north/south continuity through the City of Shakopee and into Prior Lake. This north/south function is important for local traffic as well as regional traffic making connections between Trunk Highway (TH) 169 and other regional facilities such as CH 101, 16, 42 and 82.
