Mill Street Parking Structure

Adolfson & Peterson (A&P) continues to make good progress on the Mill Street Parking Structure project. The final deck pour was completed on April 24th.

  • May 13-17    Precast Panel installation     Middle third of Mill Street closed

Met Council Sewer Project – Shoreline Drive

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) and their contractor, S.M. Hentges, have begun their work on Shoreline Drive.  During this final phase of work, the contractor will be installing a new gravity sewer main, within the off-ramp from County Road 15 and Shoreline Drive, to replace a deteriorating sewer forcemain. Shoreline Drive was closed completely in both directions between Ferndale Road and County Road 15 on April 17th. The marked detour will take eastbound motorists to Central Avenue, via Highway 12. A copy of the detour map can be found below.  The Dakota Rail trail will remain open for the duration of the project.  One crew has begun installation of the new gravity sewer, beginning at Ferndale Road, while another crew has begun pipe installation on County Road 15. This work is anticipated to be completed by July 3, 2017.  For more information on the project and to sign up to receive project updates, visit the project website at

2017 Street Improvement project

City staff has prepared plans and opened bids on May 4th for the rehabilitation and reconstruction of several streets within Wayzata.  Currently, plans include the reconstruction of Glenbrook Road, with new concrete curb and gutter, and the resurfacing of Hillside Drive and Huntington Avenue (next to the Edina Realty building).  Work is anticipated to begin after the 4th of July.

Hennepin County Pedestrian Ramp replacement

Hennepin County is nearly finished with the replacement and upgrade of the pedestrian ramps at the intersection of Central Avenue and Wayzata Boulevard.  This project is part of the county’s ADA Sidewalk Accessibility Plan (  For additional information, please see or contact Zach Rothstein at (612) 919-9759.

2017 Sanitary Sewer Lining

The City of Wayzata has contracted with Lametti and Sons, Inc. to perform maintenance on the several sewer mains throughout the City. The maintenance includes the lining of the existing sewer main with a Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) liner.  Sewer relining is a quick and economical process in lieu of replacing pipes by open excavation. This process prevents major traffic disruptions and health hazards from potential exposure to raw sewage.  The 2017 project proposes to line approximately 5,150 feet of sewer main in the following areas:  Central Avenue South, Circle Drive East, Glenbrook Road, Grand Avenue, Huntington Ave South, and Shady Lane.

2017 Pond Maintenance Project – Glenbrook Ponding Area

The project proposes to remove accumulated sediment from the storm water basins, known locally as the Glenbrook Ponds.  The ponds were originally constructed in 1993-94 by the City of Wayzata and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) and are located between Wayzata Blvd and Highway 12. Because of the warmer temperatures and the early onset of seasonal road restrictions, the contractor has not yet started this work.  Staff is awaiting an updated schedule.

2017 Sidewalk Inspections

The Street Department will be starting inspections of the City’s sidewalks.  If residents have specific areas of concern, please contact Public Works Superintendent, Jim Eibensteiner at 952-404-5368.
