Detour for through traffic
Both activities require a full closure of County Road 15.
The detour for people driving uses:
- Commerce Boulevard/County Road 110
- Watertown Road (Hennepin County Road 6) / Carver County Road 20
- Carver County Road 127

People walking, biking and rolling will need to use the detour route or other alternative routes, but will need to remain outside of the construction zones.
Local access during the closure
During the culvert replacement work, County Road 15 will be closed at only one culvert location at a time to maintain access for local residents and visitors.
This means you will still be able to get to your home, place of work or favorite business, but how you gain access to these places will change as work happens on each culvert.
Additional projects nearby
We anticipate there will be other projects in the area in 2020. These include two-county led reconstruction efforts:
We are working to coordinate with these efforts and all other construction and maintenance activities to the best of our ability.
Roadway and bridge maintenance activities in the area
In addition to the upcoming projects, the county will also complete regular short-term roadway and bridge maintenance activities. These activities include:
- roadway repaving, sweeping and cracksealing
- bridge inspections and flushing
- tree trimming
Impacts will vary depending on the work needed, but most work is done alongside traffic or with brief lane closures. We will provide updates via email as the projects near.
Also, the county is working with municipalities and the Minnesota Department of Transportation to coordinate on various other projects that will be happening this year and hope to minimize any overlap.
