Sewer Improvements Project

Several sewer improvements are planned for Victoria, Minnesota.

Sewer Update Map Along Hwy 5 for VictoriaProject Overview
Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES), operator of the metro area wastewater collection and treatment system, is making sewer infrastructure improvements in the cities of Minnetrista and Victoria. These improvements will rehabilitate infrastructure, provide capacity for future growth, and increase reliability. 

Proposed Improvements
MCES will replace one of the existing sewer pipes with a larger pipe along the south side of Highway 5 in Victoria. This work will occur near the intersection of Victoria Drive (County Road 11) to just east of the Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail. Crews will install temporary aboveground wastewater conveyance pipes at select locations to ensure there are no disruptions to the sanitary sewer service during construction.

What to Expect During Construction
  • Periodic lane shifts and traffic delays will occur on Highway 5.
  • Periodic trail closures near Highway 5.
  • Excavation and trench work will be required to connect the new sanitary sewer pipe to the existing pipe at both ends of the new pipe (see map).
  • Driveways off Highway 5 will not be closed, as crews will drill and tunnel pipe under the driveways.
Anticipated Project Schedule
  • Anticipated Start Date: April 17, 2023
