St. John’s has sat at the intersection of Hwy 212 and County Road 51 since 1866. A highway expansion is the latest change we will see in our little corner of the world. This is a major arterial road in Carver County. Thoughtful input is needed since the impact of this expansion will affect our communities for years to come.
Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the project by attending this Open House.

Cologne Community Center (1211 Village Parkway, Cologne, MN 55322)
Community members are invited to attend a public Open House. Carver County, in partnership with Benton Township, the Cities of Norwood Young America and Cologne, and MnDOT are working together to identify and implement transportation system improvements to Highway 212. The overall objective of the project includes approximately 5-miles of safety and capacity improvements along Highway 212 between Highway 34 on east side of the City of Norwood Young America to Highway 36 on the west side of the City of Cologne. Project partners are hosting a public meeting to share project updates and alignment alternatives for the recommended reconstruction and expansion of Highway 212 from a two-lane undivided to a four-lane divided highway.
