It is the goal of Carver County to provide county highway rights-of-way for the traveling public that are safe, efficient, and free of unnecessary hazards, while providing minimum inconvenience to property owners. The following ordinances and policies have been adopted by the Carver County Board of Commissioners and apply to county highway facilities.
Carver County has a management of the right-of-way ordinance to protect public safety, public interests, the reliability of its county highway system, and to dictate the appropriate use of the rights-of-way.
See the cost sharing policy that is used between Carver County and its municipalities for cooperative county highway projects.

The Rumble Strip Policy has been established to provide uniformity and consistency in the application and installation of edge line and centerline rumble strips on Carver County’s rural county highway system. This policy weighs the safety benefit with the noise nuisance associated with rumble strips, and defines when rumble strips will be used on the county highway system.
The Sign Policy has been established to provide uniformity and consistency in the application, installation, and maintenance of traffic signs on Carver County’s county highway system. This policy recognizes that the MN MUTCD is the standard for all traffic control devices on all public roads in Minnesota, and therefore all traffic control devices on Carver County’s highway system must conform to its standards and specifications as specified in Minnesota Statute 169.06.
The Snow and Ice Policy has been established to provide guidelines for the public and for plow operators to follow in order to ensure consistent practices for snow and ice removal during winter months on the county highway system.
