Paving near Luce Line Trail expected next week
This week, crews completed pavement removals and grading for the new roadway along the closure area near the Luce Line Trail overpass. Next week, crews will focus on constructing concrete curbs and installing guardrails, as well as paving and striping the new roadway.
Weather permitting, we are still on schedule to reopen to traffic on Friday, October 26.
Traffic to shift when Wayzata Boulevard reopens
This week, crews paved the first two layers of asphalt along the the southern half of Wayzata Boulevard between Glenmoor Lane and Old Long Lake Road.
When Wayzata Boulevard reopens, traffic will shift to the southern half to allow crews to reconstruct the northern half. Reconstruction of the northern half will include replacing underground utility lines and constructing the permanent roadway features.
Paved segment of Wayzata Boulevard between Glenmoor Lane and Old Long Lake Road.
Shoreline area reconstruction progressing despite rain
Frequent rain in early October slowed progress, but crews are completing final construction activities along the shoreline area.
For the remainder of October and into early November, crews expect to construct the new pedestrian refuge island connecting the Long Lake City and shoreline trails, pave the final layer of asphalt and place permanent lane stripes.
Crews form the new pedestrian refuge island to prepare for concrete pouring this weekend. The island will provide a break point for people crossing the road, should they need it. It also helps make the crossing more visible.
Final paving and striping work start Tuesday
On Tuesday, October 23, crews are scheduled to do final paving between Martha Lane and Wolf Pointe Trail.
Final paving will be completed under traffic. This means people can continue to use the road. However, people driving should expect delays and traffic configuration changes throughout the day when traveling through the area.
It is important to stay alert in this area, as construction crews and equipment on the roadway will require your extra attention.
Weather permitting, work is expected to take a day to complete to pave and place temporary striping on the road.
Crews will return the first week of November to place permanent striping.
Pavement removal work to impact some access
Short-term driveway closures west of Luce Line Trail
During the week of October 22, crews will begin removing pavement along the northern half of Wayzata Boulevard between Lindawood Lane and west of Luce Line Trail overpass.
During this work, there will be brief closures to driveways along the northern half of Wayzata Boulevard in this area. This is needed for crews to remove pavement and add gravel to allow access for residents. We will notify residents impacted by this work.
