Flying Cloud Drive reconstruction
County Road 61 in Eden Prairie and Chanhassen
Hennepin County, in coordination with MnDOT, Carver County, and the cities of Eden Prairie and Chanhassen, is preparing for the reconstruction of Flying Cloud Drive (County Road 61) between Highway 101 and Charlson Road.
The new roadway will improve the driving surface and safety along the corridor. It will be raised above the 100 year flood plain to help minimize the potential for road closures during Minnesota River flood events. The project will also add a multi-use trail along the north side of the road that will fill the gap in the trail network from Shakopee to Eden Prairie.
Construction is scheduled to start in 2017.
