The Chamber is working closely with the City, County and Mn DOT to provide the best communication possible during this project. We will be putting together some communications that you will be able to share on social media to help spread the word that Burnsville is Open for Business during the project. Please let us know if you have questions or suggestions.
Keep in mind that the County detours will only route traffic on County roads. There may be local roads that are better to access your business and you may want to come up with your own alternate routes.
