County Road 10/Hwy 5 - WACONIA

The County Road 10 corridor in the City of Waconia is a critical regional highway running through the City. Regional County and City comprehensive plans include the realignment of CSAH 10 west of the City. The realigned CSAH 10 as configured in above layout is just west of the Waconia High School and Middle School campus. The CSAH 10 roadway will continue north of the school parcel and eventually match into the existing CSAH 10 alignment. The school district (ISD 110) is currently constructing an expansion of their campus that crosses the planned highway alignment.

With this campus expansion, a new access to highway 5 was needed and is achieved through the CSAH 10 realignment. Joint benefits will be met with the Carver County highway constructed earlier than planned for access coordination, cost sharing potential, right-of-way preservation, and development coordination. A traffic study was completed jointly by the County, ISD 110, and City of Waconia that resulted in findings about the traffic benefit and long term need of the realignment of CSAH 10 west of the City.

Hwy 41 Roadway Expansion (US 212 to Pioneer Trail)

Project Summary

To improve Trunk Highway (TH) 41, from US 212 to north of Pioneer Trail (CSAH 14), a distance of 0.9 miles. TH 41 is a minor arterial roadway linking TH 169 south of the Minnesota River, over the Minnesota River through downtown Chaska, to US 212, TH 5, and TH 7. When the US 212 freeway was constructed, TH 41 was expanded to a 4-lane roadway in the vicinity of the interchange. TH 41 is a 2-lane roadway north of US 212.

Cooperating agencies involved with project development include the Carver County, City of Chaska, and the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Video shows the completed Southwest Reconnection Project

A drone video captures the recently completed Southwest Reconnection Project.

The Southwest Reconnection Project included the construction of a new 4,200-foot-long, four-lane bridge over the floodplain north of the Minnesota River channel to raise the roadway out of the 100-year flood elevation. It also included reconstruction of Highway 101/Highway 61 “Y” intersection as a roundabout and additional improvements along Highway 61 and the addition of a multi-use trail that will connect regional trails.

Need

The project is designed to reduce the frequency and duration of road closures caused by seasonal flooding of the Minnesota River Valley. It will minimize regional and local transportation disruptions that occur when other area river crossings must be closed due to seasonal flooding, and it will minimize long-term maintenance and repair costs.

Cost

The total cost of the project was $54 million. This included $34 million for Highway 101 improvements and $20 million for Highway 61 improvements.

Fund­ing for the project included approximately $22 million from the MnDOT Flood Mitigation Program. Local Road Improve­ment Program and County Turn-Back funds from the state and funding from Carver County, Scott County, and the City of Chanhassen have also been used to finance the project.
