The City of Chanhassen and Carver County have developed construction plans for pedestrian crossing safety improvements at the Powers Boulevard and Lake Lucy Road intersection in Chanhassen.
The proposed intersection design will seek to improve safety and efficiency through a number of improvements, including pedestrian-activated warning lights, a center median, and other alignment changes. These improvements are expected to improve pedestrian safety by increasing driver awareness, reducing street crossing distances, and improving sight lines.
The project has been bid and awarded to Valley Paving. The work is expected to begin in late spring 2020 and be complete by fall 2020. The work will be staged to allow Powers Boulevard to remain open to traffic, however short term closures of Lake Lucy Road will be needed.
New power poles will be installed this week. Tree trimming should take place after pole placement is complete, in preparation for Xcel transfer. Centurylink and Mediacom transfers will follow.
