Arboretum Area Transportation Plan
One of the largest transportation initiatives for Victoria, Minnesota is the Arboretum Area Transportation Plan, a vision for the transportation needs in the corridors surrounding the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
The plan encompasses transportation needs for Minnesota State Highway 5 (MN 5) from Victoria’s western city limits east past the Highway 41 intersection to Century Blvd. in Chanhassen, Rolling Acres Road and Bavaria Road from 82nd Street W north to Highway 7, and 82nd Street W from Bavaria Road east to Highway 41.
The Arboretum Area Transportation Plan identifies 20 improvement projects along the corridors. The implementation approach for the Plan prioritizes these projects based on multiple factors including recognition of already planned/programmed projects, financial constraints, funding opportunities, contribution toward improving the transportation network, public support, and Council priorities.

Rolling Acres Road — The vision for Rolling Acres Road includes reconstruction of the road with improved intersections, continuous pedestrian/bicycle facilities, and an improved crossing for the Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail. The vision includes a two-lane divided road south of Interlaken and flexibility for either a two-lane divided or three-lane facility north of Interlaken.

The Arboretum Area Transportation Plan is a partnership of Carver County Public Works Division, the Minnesota Department of Transportation, and the Cities of Victoria, Chanhassen, and Chaska.
Anticipated Project Schedule
Moving forward, the Arboretum Area Transportation Plan will be used as a reference to support coordinated transportation planning among Carver County, MnDOT, and the cities of Victoria, Chanhassen and Chaska. A shared vision for corridors in the area will assist each agency as they consider future capital improvements and develop budgets.
