Construction Update: November 18, 2022

6th Street Scheduled to Reopen Wednesday, Nov. 23 at Noon
Crews have been working hard to prepare for the reopening of the corridor next week. The installation of the first lift of street and trail pavement is now complete. Crews will be present early next week to finalize a few roadway features such as the placement of temporary roadway striping and permanent traffic control signage, as well as temporary turf restoration/erosion control. Residents can expect mail service to resume to mailboxes at individual properties adjacent to 6th Street next week.

Since the street is not paved to its final lift, there may be minor areas of water that freezes on the roadway near storm sewer catch basin locations this winter. Final project paving and restoration will take place Spring 2023.

What is being built? 

Improvements include rebuilding the roadway, improving the storm sewer network, and upgrading the pedestrian facilities along the corridor. Other updates will be made at this time to enhance the functional uses, safety and visual quality of the corridor, such as striped bike lanes, additional lighting and adjustments to key intersections. 

Other improvements being made by the city with this rehabilitation effort are intended to enhance the functional uses, safety, and visual quality of the corridor including the following:

  • Striped bike lanes to enhance the non-motorized uses of the primary corridor into downtown Carver
  • Additional lighting for safety and security
  • Adjustment to key intersections for operational and safety improvements 

 Project history 

The City of Carver was successful in a competitive grant pursuit and received $1.25 million in State Funding to reconstruct 6th Street West from Jonathan Carver Parkway to Broadway Street. This roadway serves as a primary route between Downtown Carver and Highway 212 and provides access to many key destinations, such as Carver Fire Department and the city’s largest community park.

In addition to the deteriorating pavement in need of repair, this roadway consistently floods, causing:

  • rapid deterioration of the roadway
  • dangerous icy conditions during winter months
  • flooding of adjacent properties
  • temporary road closures during heavy storms

 Public Involvement 

Public engagement has occurred with directly impacted residents along the corridor, with additional information releases planned to update the community on the project details as they are further defined and prior to construction.
