Construction Staging Map.

Who:

The City of Chaska has partnered with Carver County and MnDOT to improve Highway 212 and County Road 44 in Chaska. SRF Engineering Consulting is working with the City to implement and oversee construction of the overall project.

Why:

The Hwy 212/CR 44 Interchange Project will create a new regional connection to the communities in southwest and downtown Chaska. With the anticipated growth of southwest Chaska, the improvements to Highway 212 and County Rd 44 will ease traffic congestion and provide better safety and mobility for all future users.

When:

Stage 1 major construction to begin in June 2019. During stage 1, expect traffic impacts to include the closure of County Rd 44 between Savannah Way and Jonathan Carver Parkway. The detour route uses Chaska Blvd and Jonathan Carver Parkway. Stage 2 will begin in 2020 and will include work on County Road 44 (Big Woods Blvd) from Savannah Way to County Road 61 (Chaska Blvd).
