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

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.  More information can be found at: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/trafficeng/signals/flashingyellowarrow.html
