Jonathan Carver Parkway Corridor Study


October 16, 2019

Carver County will be collecting soil samples along Jonathan Carver Parkway in the coming weeks. The work will occur at various locations along the corridor from 4th Street to Highway 212 over a period of about 2 weeks.  Large trucks may sit parked on or near the road in various locations during this work with traffic cones and devices delineating the working area.

This work may require temporary lane restrictions and flaggers on the roadway but will not affect access along Jonathan Carver Parkway. Flaggers will be on site to direct traffic when lane restrictions occur.  If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Schmidt, at 612-619-6284.

Recent residential and commercial development in the City of Carver, especially west of Jonathan Carver Parkway (County Highway 11), has led to increased traffic demands on the Jonathan Carver Parkway corridor.  These demands are expected to increase significantly over the next 20 years as the City continues to develop.  Residents have begun feeling the effect of increased traffic on Jonathan Carver Parkway (JCP), especially when entering/exiting the corridor during peak morning and afternoon periods.  The increase in traffic as well as safety concerns prompted the need to study and identify future improvements within the JCP corridor and other improvements to the roadway network that could be made to enhance long-term safety an operations.

The overall objective of the Jonathan Carver Parkway Corridor Study is to develop a plan that addresses short-, mid-, and long-term multimodal transportation needs on Jonathan Carver Parkway and its supporting roadway network.
