Project Description

Carver County has initiated the Highway 11/43/18 Intersection and Roadways Improvement Project to increase safety and proactively prepare for future growth within the city of Victoria and surrounding region. Carver County, in collaboration with the city of Victoria, is studying the intersection of Highway 11/43/18 (Church Lake Blvd and Victoria Drive) to identify the appropriate intersection design and controls to increase safety and accommodate future traffic growth. Highway 11 is a major north-south route between Highway 5, Highway 10 and Highway 212.  Highway 43 and Highway 18 make up the west and east legs of the intersection, respectively. Highway 43 (Church Lake Boulevard) provides a vital connection from Highway 10 to Highway 11 and Highway 43.  Extensive residential development has occurred along Highway 43 in recent years and is expected to continue. Highway 18 is classified as a minor arterial roadway and continues the east-west connection through the city of Victoria to Holy Family Catholic High School, Victoria Recreation Center and Highway 5 via Bavaria Road.

Goals & Objectives

A project team has been assembled to study the intersection and develop an intersection design that accommodates future traffic growth as well as facilitates pedestrian movement and safety. Goals of the project include, minimizing property impacts, accommodate existing access, increase safety, pedestrian mobility and increased traffic efficiency.
