Lake Drive East Improvement Project

Overview


This project includes improvements to the following streets in the Lake Drive East area in the summer of 2019:  
  • Dakota Avenue from the south side of TH 5 through the intersection at Lake Drive East.
  • Lake Drive East from 500 feet west of the intersection at Dakota Avenue to Dell Road.
The project includes a mill and overlay surface improvement of the bituminous street, spot curb and gutter replacement, ADA pedestrian ramp improvements, miscellaneous utility improvements, and draintile installation.  

The intersection will change from a 2-way stop to a 3-way stop, and the stop signs will flash for approaching vehicles to increase visibility.  There will also be a sidewalk installed on the west side of Dakota Avenue between Lake Drive and Erie Avenue to improve pedestrian access into the neighborhood.
