A bridge to somewhere
The countdown has begun. After years of having only three routes from Highway 3 westbound through Farmington -- four if you count 170th Street in Lakeville -- the weeks are ticking by until a fourth route is ready to open. The extension of 195th Street from Akin Road eastbound to...

City sets construction priorities

Intersections could be costly

Getting around just got easier
Road construction around Farmington has pretty much come to an end for this season, which means it's a whole lot easier to get around these days. Highway 3 opened between Farmington and Rosemount after construction of a roundabout was completed right on schedule. On the same day,...
