Ferndale Road Sidewalk Improvements
The City of Wayzata has awarded a contract to New Look Contracting, Inc. for the construction of a concrete sidewalk on the east side of Ferndale Road, between Wayzata Boulevard and Lake Street. The project will include the addition of storm sewer and concrete curbs, and mill and overlay of the bituminous pavement on Ferndale Road. Construction is expected to begin in mid-August and will be completed in October.
2023 Pavement Rejuvenation
The City of Wayzata has hired Corrective Asphalt Materials to perform a pavement surface rejuvenation project on Barry Avenue North, Barry Avenue South, and the access drive to the Lake & Barry parking lot (from Lake Street East). This project will provide an alternative treatment method to Wayzata’s traditional seal-coating maintenance that should extend the life of the bituminous asphalt pavement. This work is scheduled to occur during the week of August 21st 2023, and will be completed in one day.
Questions or concerns about this project can be directed to Jen Schumann in the City’s Engineering Department at 952-404-5371 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Comcast Residential Cable TV and Internet Systems
Comcast has been granted approval to provide cable TV and internet service to Wayzata’s residents, and began installing the infrastructure system in 2022. Some of the infrastructure will be aerial (mounted on existing utility poles) and some of it will be installed underground. When scheduled to work in your neighborhood, Comcast’s contractor, Universal Services, will notify residents by placing door hangers on your door, like the one linked blow. If you have questions or would like more information about the project, you can visit the project webpage or you can contact Universal Services at 651-432-3000.
