Welcome to the Southwest Corridor Transportation Coalition (SWCTC)

The Coalition is comprised of local government officials, business owners and other concerned residents. The Coalition has been advocating for transportation improvements in our area for many years.

The work of the Coalition has resulted in:

  • Widening of TH 5 from I-494 west to four lanes
  • Construction of New Highway 212 from I-494 in Eden Prairie to TH 41
  • Safety improvements in Carver, after many years of delay.

Currently, the Coalition is advocating for safety improvements to Highway 5 and continued work to expand and improve US Highway 212 west of Chaska.
