Mound area regional sewer replacement

Westedge Boulevard (County Road 44) in Mound and Minnetrista

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES), the City of Mound, Hennepin County and CenterPoint Energy are making utility and street improvements along Westedge Boulevard (County Road 44) between just east of Setter Circle and Highway 7. MCES is the lead on this project.

In coordination with MCES, Hennepin County will replace some existing storm sewer piping and make drainage improvements along Westedge Boulevard between Sinclair Road and Maple Forest. CenterPoint Energy will also be in the area replacing natural gas mains and connecting natural gas service lines on Westedge Boulevard between Bartlett Boulevard and Shady Lane.

The project is scheduled to begin in spring 2018 and be completed in 2020. It is expected that segments of Westedge Boulevard be closed during construction.

Detours, closures and travel considerations

Mound area sewer and utility improvements project underway

On Wednesday, May 2, Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) began its sewer and utility improvements project along County Road 44/Westedge Boulevard in Mound and Minnetrista.

The first area of construction is between approximately Setter Circle and Halstead Bay Bridge. Work in this area is expected to last through fall.

During construction, County Road 44/Westedge Boulevard will fully close to through traffic between approximately Setter Circle and Highway 7. However, the Bartlett Boulevard (County Road 110) and Westedge Boulevard intersection will remain open to all traffic. 

Through traffic will be detoured using Bartlett Boulevard/County Road 110, Lynwood Boulevard (County Road 15), County Road 92 and Highway 7.

Local residents who live along the larger closure area will still have access to their homes, but may need to access the area to/from the north or south depending on where they live.

MCES will be working with local residents in this year’s construction zone directly, to coordinate access to their homes during crew activities.
