  • May 5, 2023: Lane closures in both directions will be in effect starting the week of May 8th to complete necessary work.
  • April 29, 2023: Planting and landscaping complete. Concrete work and pedestrian ramp to be finished by mid-May.
  • April 20, 2023: Starting the week of April 24, traffic is expected to be reduced to a single lane in each direction. This will allow work for planting and landscaping in the medians and boulevards. This traffic change is expected to last approximately one month. 
  • March 2023: Awaiting warmer weather to continue with final clean up items
  • November 23, 2022: Construction is mostly complete and all lanes are open to traffic. In the spring 2023, final seeding, striping, and clean up work will occur. 
  • August 3, 2022: Weather permitting, County Highway (CH) 83 will reopen to traffic on Thursday morning, August 4. Please expect some delays as crews make this change. Once reopened, construction will begin on the east side of CR 83, and traffic will be shifted to the west side of the road (Learn about Stage 2 - PDF). During this time, access to Barenscheer Blvd. and Secretariat Dr. from CH 83 will be closed. Thank you for your patience during construction!
  • July 12, 2022: Weather permitting, the Highway 169 westbound on-ramp and eastbound off ramp will be closed beginning July 12 for about one week. Traffic will utilize the ramps at County Highway 17 for detour around this area. This closure will be held in conjunction of the current road closure on County Highway 83 from 12th Ave to 4th Ave. This traffic is being detoured via County Highway 16, County Highway 17, and Highway 101.

Traffic will be shifted to the east side during this time. Please note that the Secretariat and Barenscheer accesses will also be closed during this stage.

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.
