Is your road dangerous? Speak up!

Scott County is launching next month a series of public outreach sesssions aimed at both explaining how it chooses transportation projects and hearing back about highway improvements that residents want.

The context is the county’s 10-year Transportation Improvement Program, and sessions with the county’s highway engineer are to be held in each of the five commissioner districts.

The program involves reconstruction or other forms of improvement for highways, trails, bridges and transit facilities, with an emphasis on safety concerns.

For more details, contact Mitch Rasmussen, highway engineer, at 952-496-8026 or

The sessions that have been scheduled:

• April 3, 6 to 8 p.m., Elko New Market Library, 110 J. Roberts Way.

• April 9, 6 to 8 p.m., county board room, 200 4th Av. W., Shakopee.

• April 17, 7 to 9 p.m., Regional Training Facility, 17706 Valley View Drive, Jordan.

• April 23, 7 to 9 p.m., Parkview Room at Prior Lake City Hall, 4646 Dakota St. SE.

• April 30, 7 to 9 p.m., Marion Hall at Savage City Hall, 6000 McColl Drive.
