- Engage communities to build consensus on an area-wide transportation vision for project corridors
- Develop locally supported transportation improvements that address traffic management, safety, and project phasing along the corridors
- Identify short-, mid-, and long-term transportation improvements along the project corridors
This project is a corridor traffic management, safety, and phasing plan with a focus on community engagement and consensus building. The project team will conduct public engagement activities with the goal of creating a community-focused transportation vision.
The project includes technical analysis of current conditions in the following areas: traffic and design needs, access management, frontage road needs, safety, connectivity to major highways in the area, bicycle and pedestrian connections, transit needs, stormwater requirements, and environmental screening and documentation. The recommended improvements will incorporate these transportation need areas.
County Public Works Division, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), and the Cities of Victoria, Chanhassen, and Chaska
Stay Informed, Get Involved
Engaging stakeholders is a key component of the Arboretum Area Transportation Plan. There are multiple ways that you can get involved!
The Rolling Acres Road Neighborhood Meeting scheduled for March 16th was postponed due to public health concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic. The purpose of the meeting was to review and provide input on transportation improvement options and conceptual drawings for Rolling Acres Road. Materials from the meeting are now available on the Additional Information page (see Rolling Acres Road Neighborhood Meeting #3). Please fill out the online survey to let us know your feedback on the improvement options and concepts.
Also, on Monday, March 23rd, we will present information about the Rolling Acres Road options to the Victoria City Council. The purpose of this presentation is to provide an update to the Council and residents – no decisions will be made about the options during this meeting. A recording of the Council meeting and presentation will be available through the City's website, and we will post the link here.
Public involvement is a key component of the Arboretum Transportation Plan. Thank you for your patience as we adjust our approach to accommodate the current situation.
INPUTiD is a web-based tool that allows site-specific comments to be submitted during different project phases. The comment period for the existing conditions phase has ended and comments are no longer being accepted. Please review the INPUTiD Summary for a list of common concerns. If you have questions or comments, please reach out to one of the project contacts.
Check back later to comment on potential improvements. As improvement alternatives are developed and shared with the public, they will be uploaded into the mapping tool for public discussion.
Public Open House:
