Hennepin County, in coordination with MnDOT, Carver County, and the cities of Eden Prairie and Chanhassen, is reconstructing Flying Cloud Drive (Highway 61) between Highway 101 and Charlson Road.
Current Traffic Impacts
Flying Cloud Drive is open to traffic. A few lane closures may be required to complete final maintenance and clean-up.
What to Expect
Flying Cloud Drive from the Highway 101 roundabout to Charlson Road has been reconstructed to current safety standards and to meet future traffic needs.
A new pedestrian trail is being constructed along the north side of Flying Cloud Drive to connect trail facilities between Highway 101 and Charlson Road.
Flying Cloud Drive has been raised above the 100-year flood elevation to reduce the risk of future flooding closures.
Numerous retaining walls have been built along the north side of Flying Cloud Drive.
- Flying Cloud Drive will remain open. A few lane closures may be required to complete final maintenance and clean-up.
Anticipated Project Schedule
The project is complete however a few maintenance and clean up items remain that are in the process of being completed this summer.
