Wayzata & Superior Boulevard Intersection
The need: improved safety and access to neighborhoods, businesses, and amenities
The realignment of the Wayzata Boulevard and Superior Boulevard intersection was planned as part of the overall public improvements surrounding the Presbyterian Homes project (now known as “The Promenade”). Now that The Promenade is finished, completing the construction of this intersection is the last significant task left as a part of the comprehensive redevelopment plan that aimed to improve pedestrian connections, replace failing pavement, improve wayfinding to downtown Wayzata, and reduce overall traffic congestion.
A new traffic signal system will be installed at the intersection, wayfinding signage will be added, and the streets will be reconstructed as well. Superior Boulevard will be realigned to connect with Benton Avenue. Associated sidewalks and landscape buffering will also be constructed as part of this project.
Streets will remain open to traffic during construction; however, traffic lanes may be restricted or shifted to allow for construction staging. Please plan on delays through this area for the duration of the project.
The City’s contractor, New Look Contracting, is currently locating utilities within the project area, and is planning to begin work as soon as the week of April 8. Once the contractor provides a proposed schedule, we will share it. The project is expected to be completed by mid-July.
The City will be providing ongoing updates about the Wayzata Boulevard and Superior Boulevard Intersection and other road construction projects. To stay informed, please sign up for email or text alerts.
