Marsh Lake Road
Marsh Lake Road, from CR 11 to CR 43, is currently  a two-lane, unpaved, 55 mph City road.  The road is the future extension of County Road 14 (Pioneer Trail).  In 2015, the City met with representatives from Carver County to discuss transportation priorities throughout the City.  The upgrade of Marsh Lake Road was identified by the City Council as a high priority. The current gravel road cannot support the increasing traffic. The County and City share responsibility for funding this upgrade under the County's Development Driven Cost Participation Policy. 

Preliminary Design for the roadway is underway.  Construction could occur as soon as 2019.

2017 Street and Drainage Improvement Project

The proposed 2017 Street and Drainage Improvement project, as part of the City’s Annual Street Capital Improvement Plan, is a reclaim project in which the streets included will gain a new road base, draintile, and a new bituminous surface.  In addition, adjacent properties will receive a sump pump service extended to their property.  Finally, it is proposed that as part of this project, there will be spot curb replacement, and maintenance on both the watermain and sanitary sewer systems. The project is in the early stages of planning, and if approved, it is anticipated that construction would begin mid to late July 2017.
