Navigate Wayzata - Project Update ( brought to you by City of Wayzata and Greater Wayzata Area Chamber of Commerce )

April 12, 2019

This summer, there will be multiple road construction projects in Wayzata that will enhance driver and pedestrian safety and improve lakefront access, creating stronger connections to our exceptional neighborhoods, businesses and community spaces. Projects include the intersection of Wayzata and Superior Boulevards, the Central Avenue (County Road 101) bridge over US Highway 12, and Lake Street.
These projects might impact the way you get around – but we’re here to help you navigate Wayzata. We will provide updates on these projects each week. Please encourage others to sign up for updates as well.


Wayzata and Superior Boulevard Intersection 

Construction activity began this week on the Wayzata and Superior Boulevard intersection as crews began removing and reconstructing the retaining walls along the north side of Wayzata Boulevard on each side of Benton Avenue. It is anticipated that traffic will be reduced to one lane for westbound Wayzata Boulevard to accommodate this work. Work on the medians within the roadway is expected to begin during the week of April 15, weather permitting.
This full project includes reconstructing and realigning the existing intersection, as well as a new traffic signal system, lighting along Superior Boulevard, wayfinding signage, and landscaped medians. Streets will be open to traffic during construction; however, traffic lanes will be restricted or shifted to accommodate work. Expect traffic delays throughout the project area for the duration of the project. Construction is anticipated to be completed by mid-July
If you have any questions concerning this project, please contact:


Central Avenue Bridge Over Highway 12

In partnership with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) and Hennepin County, this work will replace the deteriorating bridge with a wider bridge deck and add new turn lanes that will allow for better traffic flow and improved safety. New traffic signal systems at the Highway 12 on- and off-ramps will also be added, and safer sidewalks will be constructed along County Road 101/Central Avenue.
The project is anticipated to begin in May, with anticipated bridge removal in early July.  Construction is planned to be completed in October. Traffic will be rerouted, and all businesses and residences will remain accessible throughout the project.
