Arboretum Area Transportation Plan Reference Map, identifies roadways in plan

Purpose & Goal

The overall goal of the Arboretum Area Transportation Plan is to engage involved communities to reach consensus on an area-wide transportation vision and project specific, locally supported, project layouts that address traffic management, safety, and project phasing along the corridor. The planning process will take place in 2019 and 2020.


The Carver County Public Works Division, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), and the cities of Victoria, Chanhassen, and Chaska are partnering on this important transportation planning project.

This is a corridor traffic management, safety, and phasing plan that primarily includes Highway 5 (Arboretum Blvd.) from approximately the city of Victoria’s western city limits east past the Highway 41 (Hazeltine Blvd.) / Highway 5 (Arboretum Blvd.) intersection area to Century Blvd. in the city of Chanhassen.  The study area also includes Highway 13 (Rolling Acres Rd. / Bavaria Rd.) from Highway 7 to Highway 18 (82nd St. W) and 82nd St. W from Highway 13 (Bavaria Rd.) to Highway 41 (Hazeltine Blvd.).

The purpose of this study is to provide for short-, mid-, and long-term transportation improvements along Highway 5 and the additional study areas.  The plan will include reviewing traffic and design needs, access management, frontage and/or backage road needs, safety, connectivity to other major highways in the area, bicycle/trail and pedestrian connections, transit needs, stormwater requirements, and environmental screening and documentation.
