Wayzata Boulevard closed to through traffic
On Monday, October 15, we closed Wayzata Boulevard (County Road 112) to through traffic between Wolf Pointe Trail and Wayzata Boulevard West. This is the last scheduled full closure for this phase of Wayzata Boulevard reconstruction.
There will be access for local traffic, but the road will be completely closed east of Lindawood Lane and 200 feet east of the Luce Line Trail overpass. We need to close the road to safely and efficiently replace utility crossings located underneath the road and reconstruct the road.
The Luce Line Trail will remain open during this work.
We expect this work to take up to 12 calendar days to complete and reopen to traffic on Friday, October 26. Due to the nature of the work and the weather, the schedule is subject to change.

Detour for the full closure
During the closure, signs will guide people to the detour using Highway 12.
Due to the nature of the work, the geography of the area and the levels of traffic local streets are designed for, all motor vehicle traffic will need to use the official detour.
Using the detour will keep our crews safe. It will also keep you from experiencing delays and getting frustrated. And it keeps the neighborhood traffic safer for the individuals and families who live, work and play in the area.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Intermittent side street closures on Monday, October 15
On Monday, crews will begin paving the southern half of Wayzata Boulevard between Heather and Greenhill lanes as well as each of the side street entrances.
During paving, there will be intermittent closures to the entrances of Heather, Russell and Greenhill lanes where crews are working.
Local residents and their visitors on these connecting streets will still have access during the intermittent closures as we will keep at least two entrances open at all times. Signage will be placed along each of the side streets to inform residents of the closures. Weather permitting, paving is expected to take two days to complete.
Dust, noise and vibrations in the construction area
Crews will be using large construction equipment throughout construction, creating dust, noise and slight vibrations. Dust, noise and vibrations are a normal part of a construction project.
The project team is working in accordance with noise ordinances set by both cities of Long Lake and Orono. The team also has a vibration control plan and vibration monitors, if necessary, to use along the corridor to make sure that vibrations stay within standard acceptable limits. Dust is being monitored and controlled in order to keep levels at a minimum.
If you have concerns or questions about noise and/or vibrations, please contact the project at 612-543-4275.
