Now that Southview Blvd. is open to traffic, the City has been made aware of some concerns regarding the thru-stop traffic control at the intersection of 12th Avenue and Southview Blvd.
An extensive analysis was conducted of all intersection
along the Southview Blvd. corridor prior to the implementation of the project.
As part of the process, public input was received and discussion with public
officials occurred. Dakota County’s top priority in evaluating traffic control
measures is public safety (automotive and pedestrian). Traffic control
recommendations were implemented based on the extensive analysis. The new traffic control measures along the Southview Blvd. corridor will be monitored very closely for the first year to see how traffic patterns and operation are working with the new design and traffic control. The below links provide more information on the traffic control analysis.
