Minnewashta Parkway Improvement Project


This proposed project is planned to be constructed in 2020.  The project limits within Chanhassen will extend from Hwy. 7 to the border with the City of Victoria which is between Lakeridge Road and Hawthorne Circle.  The Cities of Chanhassen and Victoria are coordinating a joint project to also complete the shorter section of roadway within Victoria from the border to West 77th Street.  The roadway section between West 77th Street and Hwy. 5 was previously improved.  Hence, the entire street length between Hwy. 7 and Hwy. 5 will be improved by the end of the project.

The project will include replacement of the water main under the street, and new water service piping form the water main to the curb stop/box near the property lines.  Gate valves and hydrants will also be replaced.  Sanitary sewer, force main, and stormwater piping system repairs will be made as necessary.  Surface water improvements to some of the storm water ponds are also planned.  The retaining walls within the public right-of-way will be evaluated and improved as needed.  The trails will be reviewed, and accessibility improvements to access the trails will be a project priority.  The existing curb and gutter will be reviewed and spot replacements will be done as needed.  The existing manhole lids will be replaced to make inflow improvements and adjusted to match the profile of the street height.  A geotechnical evaluation has been performed and some soil corrections will be made.  Drain tile will be added to improve the drainage of the street section.

Project Notifications Disclaimer
Due to the variability of construction, updates typically do not include specific details such as day-to-day scheduled activity. The City's inspector or contractor will notify occupants directly if they will be impacted by a utility service shut down (example: water shutoff), or work (such as excavation or new curb) that will impede access to the property for a period of hours or days.
