Project Overview

The City of Farmington has started a project to complete sidewalk replacements along 3rd Street in downtown this summer. The city has also partnered with Dakota County to include work along County Road 50 (Elm Street).

The project will entail removal of the existing sidewalk panels and paver bricks and replacement with standard concrete utilizing the city’s selected scoring pattern. In addition, the paver crosswalks at the intersection of 3rd Street and Oak Street will be removed and replaced with painted crosswalks, meeting today’s ADA standards.

Downtown will be open for business!

Access to downtown businesses will be maintained throughout the entire project. However, to facilitate construction, parking will be limited on 3rd Street. Other public parking in the downtown will be available during this time and we encourage use of these areas to allow the contractor to complete their work efficiently. Please see the “Business Owner Tool Box” page for upcoming information on project schedule and parking options.

We encourage you to sign up for project updates to stay current on the development of the project!
