The project proposes the reconstruction of County Road 61/Flying Cloud Drive from Highway 101 in Chanhassen to Charlson Road in Eden Prairie.
Proposed improvements include:
- Constructing a new three-lane urban roadway with shoulders
- Continuous left-turn lane
- Right-turn lanes at key intersections
- Multiuse trail on the north side of the roadway
- Improved drainage facilities
The project goal is to replace the existing pavement, improve safety and minimize transportation disruptions caused by seasonal flooding of the Minnesota River. Hennepin County is the lead agency for this project.
This project is part of the HWY 101/61 Southwest Reconnect Project located in Chanhassen and Shakopee including the 101 bridge.
Preliminary engineering work for this project is completed and a detailed project layout has been fully developed (see below).
Proposed construction is in 2015-2017.
