What is being built?
Improvements include rebuilding the roadway, improving the storm sewer network, and upgrading the pedestrian facilities along the corridor. Other updates will be made at this time to enhance the functional uses, safety and visual quality of the corridor, such as striped bike lanes, additional lighting and adjustments to key intersections.
Other improvements being made by the city with this rehabilitation effort are intended to enhance the functional uses, safety, and visual quality of the corridor including the following:
- Striped bike lanes to enhance the non-motorized uses of the primary corridor into downtown Carver
- Additional lighting for safety and security
- Adjustment to key intersections for operational and safety improvements
The City of Carver was successful in a competitive grant pursuit and received $1.25 million in State Funding to reconstruct 6th Street West from Jonathan Carver Parkway to Broadway Street. This roadway serves as a primary route between Downtown Carver and Highway 212 and provides access to many key destinations, such as Carver Fire Department and the city’s largest community park.
In addition to the deteriorating pavement in need of repair, this roadway consistently floods, causing:
- rapid deterioration of the roadway
- dangerous icy conditions during winter months
- flooding of adjacent properties
- temporary road closures during heavy storms
Public engagement has occurred with directly impacted residents along the corridor, with additional information releases planned to update the community on the project details as they are further defined and prior to construction.
