Purpose & Evaluations

Carver County partnered with MnDOT and the City of Norwood Young America to conduct a transportation study for the State Highway 5/25, County Highway 33/Reform Street, and US 212 area. This intersection is considered a priority in the County Highway Safety plan. The study began in April 2018 and included the evaluation of intersection alternatives at the State Highway 5/25 and County Highway 33 intersection to address the existing intersection safety issues. A roundabout option was identified as the preferred alternative. The study also looked at the surrounding area, specifically Reform Street North. 

Additional evaluation was completed on the selected roundabout layout to consider how this project would interact with MnDOT’s 2020 programmed improvements for US 212.
