Lake Street, between Ferndale Road and Barry Avenue is open to motorists in both directions; however, the sidewalk and trail remain closed on the south side of Lake Street while contractors complete landscaping and installing the irrigation systems and street lighting.
Westbound Lake Street, between Broadway and Walker Avenues is open to motorists. Eastbound Lake Street will remain closed to allow the contractors access to the new Plaza Park area.
Full closure of Lake Street between Walker and Barry Avenues is expected to remain through the end of July. Businesses on Lake Street are accessible to pedestrians and there is ample parking available on adjacent side streets, and at the City’s Mill Street Parking Ramp.
Please Use Sidewalks
The streets are not to be used by pedestrians. There are many safety hazards that exist on and around the Wayzata Panoway construction job site, which is why the site is fenced off, and the public is not permitted to enter the site.
The posted detour routes for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are the safest routes around the construction zone. Use of the railroad corridor is prohibited. Walking, jogging or biking on the railroad corridor is considered trespassing. Please use the designated routes instead. For more detailed information about the detour routes, including maps, please visit NavigateWayzata.com.
The Streets Department is currently striping parking lots, painting crosswalks and other pavement markings throughout Wayzata. This work will continue through August and into September.
The City hired a contractor to repair broken and heaved sidewalks in several locations throughout Wayzata. The repairs are scheduled to begin on Monday, August 10, and should be completed in approximately one week.
