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 (www.hennepin.us/adaplan). For additional information, please see www.hennepin.us/roadmaintenance 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.
