Hwy 212 Planning Study


About this study

This study addresses Hwy 212 capacity and safety improvements, as well as the relationship between an interim traffic signal at the Hwy 212/284 and County Road 53 intersection and the Hwy 212 connection of a new future north-south minor arterial highway. To address these concerns, a Hwy 212 - Cologne Area Transportation Study Partnership was formed in June 2004 to prepare a coordinated, phased approach to solve the short- and long-term future access needs of Hwy 212. Representatives from MnDOT, Carver County, the City of Cologne, and surrounding townships participated on a project management team and in several local workshops to develop potential study solutions.
