[CARVER, MN, JUNE 17, 2021] – The Local Road Improvement Program (LRIP) has awarded the city of Carver $1.25 million in funds to reconstruct 6th Street West. This program provides financial assistance for road construction projects with local, regional, or statewide significance that cannot reasonably be funded through other revenue sources.
This grant will help transform 6th Street W from Jonathan Carver Parkway to Broadway Street by improving safety, creating better access to downtown, and mitigating flooding issues. These improvements will help strengthen the connection between the growing key destinations in Carver, such as downtown, Post Office, Fire Department, Carver Elementary School, Children of Tomorrow Learning Center, Carver Ridge, Carver Station SW Transit Park & Ride, Kwik Trip, and regional trail system.
“The LRIP Grant will allow the City of Carver to make much needed improvements to 6th Street West so we can improve access, the appearance, and the function of this important link into Carver’s historic downtown,” said Mayor Courtney Johnson. “I appreciate the work by city staff who prepared the grant application, and those who wrote letters of support which gave the city of Carver a competitive edge to win this grant in what turned out to be a highly competitive process!”
The city plans to fully reconstruct 6th Street in 2022. Stay tuned to the city website for more details in the coming months.
