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
Lyman Boulevard (County Road 18) Construction
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 on project page to the left for detailed information.
The roadway was closed on May 27, 2014. The project is designed to be constructed with phased construction. The area between Powers and Audubon North will close for phase one until early fall.
The area between Audubon North and Audubon South will be closed for 4 weeks beginning July 25, 2014. The entire roadway is planned to be re-opened to traffic by early fall.
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.
