Preserve Boulevard Improvement Project
Pre-construction activity on the Preserve Boulevard Improvement Project begins this week. Work includes signage set-up, installing a temporary traffic signal at Prairie Center Drive and Anderson Lakes Parkway, clearing trees, installing erosion control materials and delivering equipment to the site.
The Preserve Boulevard Improvement Project includes the following primary components:
- Prairie Center Drive/Preserve Boulevard intersection improvements.
- Addition of a second southbound lane on Preserve Boulevard and associated intersection improvements at Anderson Lakes Parkway.
- Addition of left turn lanes at all intersections along Preserve Boulevard and center medians along the full length of the roadway.
- Addition of a storm water pump station to pump water from Eden Lake to Neil Lake. This is an improvement to the Eden Lake storm water outlet to help control Eden Lake water levels and minimize the impact of large rain events on adjacent properties.
Construction is scheduled to be completed this fall. For more information on Eden Prairie road construction projects visit edenprairie.org/InfrastructureProjects.
