82nd Street Project    CONSTRUCTION (FALL 2024-2025) 
The 82nd Street Project will complete a missing regional connection of County Highway 18 (82nd Street) between County Highway 41, as well as improve the local highway, pedestrian and bicycle networks for projected area growth. The existing 82nd Street gravel roadway will be reconstructed into a two-lane paved highway with curb and gutter and a multi-use trail on the north side. The project will construct a roundabout at Bavaria Road, and is studying a potential roundabout at McKnight Road as well as a connection to Lyman Boulevard to the east that includes a crossing over the Chaska Ravine Trail.

Downtown West (Hwy 5/11) Improvement Project    CONSTRUCTION (2025) 
The City of Victoria, in partnership with Carver County and MnDOT, is planning improvements to the intersection of Highway 5 and 11 (west) and the surrounding area as part of the Downtown West Improvement Project. This project improves safety, traffic flow, and downtown access to support the needs of the area as it continues to grow, including the Downtown West Expansion project.

Highway 11/14 Roundabout    CONSTRUCTION (AUGUST 2024-NOVEMBER 2024) 
Carver County will work with the City of Victoria to provide enhanced safety and mobility at the intersection of Highway 11 and Highway 14. This intersection was identified as a candidate and received federal funding through the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) to construct a roundabout. This project will utilize a full closure in the fall of 2024 in order to quickly and efficiently construct the roundabout.

Highway 11 Project - Carver Park Reserve    CONSTRUCTION (2025) 

Carver County, in conjunction with the City of Victoria, is in the design stage of the Highway 11 Project - Carver Park Reserve. This project will work to add wider shoulders, improve road geometrics, and enhance safety from Highway 5 to Highway 7.
