The adoption of a new franchise fee has allowed the City to invest substantially more in the maintenance and preservation of our local roads, which can be seen from the scope of the 2020 Local Pavement Rehabilitation project. This project will incorporate multiple roadway treatments (mill & overlay, full depth reclamation, etc.) depending on the condition of the road for each area, along with minor spot repairs on existing utilities.
A total of seven (7) miles of roadway is proposed to be improved, so the project has been broken up into six areas; the Lake Lucy Road area (east of Powers Boulevard), Choctaw Circle area, Kurvers Point Road area, Marsh Drive area, Redwing Lane area, and the Trappers Pass area. The project is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2020, with work scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2020. Residents that utilize the streets within the project areas will be notified if access is limited.
The City of Chanhassen's Assessment Practice is intended to provide direction to City Staff in preparation of assessment rolls for public improvements, to ensure fair and consistent treatment of all properties within the City of Chanhassen.
Pavement Management Questions/Answers
In light of recent state funding losses stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and out of concern for the potential negative economic impact assessments might have on some Chanhassen residents, the City Council voted Monday night to postpone planned road construction projects for 2021 and beyond and reassess at a later time.

|Project Notification 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.|
