Highway 101 (Pioneer Trail to CSAH 61) Improvements

Overview


The City of Chanhassen, in cooperation with MnDOT and Carver County, has completed preliminary design and environmental review for Highway 101 from Pioneer Trail (CSAH 14) to Flying Cloud Drive (CSAH 61). Planning for improvements to Highway 101 between CSAH 14 and CSAH 61 was necessary to determine a proposed layout for the remaining section of roadway between Highway 212 and the Minnesota River. The preliminary design and environmental review process for this section of Highway 101 addressed numerous constraints including steep grades/challenging topography, poor sight distances and blind intersections, and limited right-of-way. This is the last leg of the southern portion of Highway 101.
