Road Construction Projects
Highway 101 River Bridge Construction
Preliminary road, bridge, and geotechnical engineering have begun. Carver County is leading the project delivery and design effort for the Hwy 101/Flying Cloud Drive “wye” at the north end of the project, and the overall project delivery and roadway design (including MnDOT's portion). MnDOT will continue to assist Carver County with bridge design, construction engineering and other engineering services as needed. Cost estimates are still being refined during preliminary design and soils investigation. More information can be found at: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/hwy101river/index.html
County Road 40 Bridge Replacement - ROAD CLOSURE
County Road 40 just south of County Road 50 (East Union) will be closed on February 9, 2015 for a bridge replacement project. A detour will be posted on CR 50, CR 41, CR 52. The road is estimated to be closed until May 29, 2015. The project will include replacement of the 1927 bridge and roadway work.
Lyman Boulevard (County Road 18) Construction
CSAH 18 (Lyman Blvd) is now open from Audubon North to CSAH 17 (Powers Blvd). The roadway is open as a divided roadway with one travel lane in each direction. There is currently a 4-way stop at the CSAH 18 (Lyman Blvd) and CSAH 17 (Powers Blvd) intersection. Work continues at this intersection to complete the installation of the traffic signal, this will be complete and operational the first week in December 2014.
Final paving work on this section will be complete in Spring 2015, and at that time will be opened as a 4-lane (2 lanes in each direction) divided roadway.Click on project page to the left for detailed information.
Work includes the reconstruction of the existing roadway from a 2-lane rural highway to a 4-lane divided highway. Additional improvements include, but are not limited to widening the existing corridor, intersection improvements, bituminous surfacing, concrete curb and gutter, traffic signal upgrades, culvert replacement, paved trails, turn lane improvements, water main extension, retaining wall, pavement markings, access and drainage improvements.Click here for layout
New Signal Design Information “Flashing Yellow Arrow Design”
A relatively new signal has been installed at County Road 11 and County Road 61 (Mills Fleet Farm Entrance) and at County Road 10 and County Road 11 that will become more and more common across the State and Country as it has become a new standard. The signal provide more flexibility to control the intersection during heavy traffic conditions while reducing needless wait time for drivers during low traffic periods.
