The adoption of a new franchise fee has allowed the City to invest substantially more in the maintenance and preservation of our local roads, which can be seen from the scope of the 2021 City Pavement Rehabilitation project. This project will incorporate multiple roadway treatments (mill & overlay, full depth reclamation, etc.) depending on the condition of the road for each area, along with minor spot repairs on existing utilities.
A total of seven (7) miles of roadway is proposed to be improved, so the project has been broken up into six areas; the Lake Lucy Road area (east of Powers Boulevard), Choctaw Circle area, Kurvers Point Road area, Marsh Drive area, Redwing Lane area, and the Trappers Pass area. The project is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2021, with work scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2021. Residents that utilize the streets within the project areas will be notified if access is limited.
This project was originally planned for 2020, however In light of recent state funding losses stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and out of concern for the potential negative economic impact assessments might have on some Chanhassen residents, the City Council voted to postpone the planned road construction project and reassess at a later time.
The City of Chanhassen's Assessment Practice is intended to provide direction to City Staff in preparation of assessment rolls for public improvements, to ensure fair and consistent treatment of all properties within the City of Chanhassen.

|Project Notification Disclaimer|
|Due to the variability of construction, updates typically do not include specific details such as day-to-day scheduled activity. The City's inspector or contractor will notify occupants directly if they will be impacted by a utility service shut down (example: water shutoff), or work (such as excavation or new curb) that will impede access to the property for a period of hours or days.|
