Scott County Highway 16 from Canterbury Road to 18 is one of my least favorite roads in Shakopee. It got pushed further into that category today as a school bus went into the ditch. Luckily no one was hurt.
Thankfully, Scott County pushed reconstruction on this project up to 2016 from 2019.
Starting spring of 2016, CH 16 from Canterbury Road to CH 21 will be expanded to 4 lanes with trails and a frontage road for residential. The section between 21 and 18 is being evaluated for improvements. This project is being completed with cooperation and right of way from the SMSC.
Scott County has a project page set up with all of the information for this project at:
There is also an open house coming up on:
