State Highway Projects
Corridor scoping, environmental screening and preliminary design study report for the segment from Lyman Boulevard to the Scott County Line.
The City of Chanhassen, in cooperation with MnDOT and Carver County, are in the process of completing design and environmental review documents for this remaining segment of Highway 101. Planning for these improvements is necessary to determine the proposed layout between Highway 212 and the Minnesota River. The preliminary design and environmental review process must address numerous constraints including steep grades/challenging topography, poor site distances and blind intersections, and limited right-of-way.
Carver County is heading up a project to construct a new Highway 101 bridge over the floodplain in Chanhassen. The raised roadway will minimize transportation disruptions caused by seasonal flooding of the Minnesota River Valley.
Disclaimer: This project is not occurring in the city of Chanhassen but may have some affect on Highway 5 traffic during the construction period.
