Burnsville Center Village Roadway Improvements (Preliminary Design)

The City of Burnsville, in partnership with Dakota County, was awarded a MnDOT Transportation Economic Development (TED) grant for construction of a new exit ramp from southbound I-35W under County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 42 to Buck Hill Road. The total project cost is estimated to be about $5M and the TED Grant award is $3.1M. The ramp will be constructed as part of MnDOT's upcoming I-35W Improvement Project scheduled for construction starting in 2025.

The Burnsville Center Village Redevelopment Vision includes an extension of Aldrich Avenue connecting CSAH 42 and Buck Hill Road through the Burnsville Center property. Based on public outreach completed in 2022-2023, the street is envisioned as a multi-modal corridor that will connect the retail and potential future residential areas with trails and boulevard space. Information about the public outreach and feedback can be found in the outreach summary. There is currently no funding determined for this street.
