Wayzata and Superior Boulevard Intersection

Construction will be completed in the coming weeks. The anticipated schedule of activities is as follows:
  • Week of August 12: The permanent signal system poles will be installed and the temporary system will be removed, which will require that the signal system is temporarily placed in “flash” mode and will function as a four-way stop. Plant and irrigation installation will also be completed along the north side of Wayzata Boulevard.
  • Week of August 19: Concrete sidewalk construction and associated restoration activities will be completed.
  • Week of August 26: The final layer of bituminous pavement will be placed and striping will be completed.
Minor restoration activities and clean-up work may extend into early September, however these activities are not anticipated to disrupt traffic.

Lake Street

We are currently accepting construction bids to reconstruct Lake Street from Broadway Avenue to Barry Avenue. This construction includes the first phase of work to bring the Wayzata Lake Effect to life, better preserving our Lake Minnetonka shoreline for generations to come. Lake Street will be reconstructed to be more pedestrian and bicycle friendly. A beautiful, multi-use plaza park will be added near the lakefront, replacing the existing surface parking lot at Lake Street and Broadway Avenue and providing additional gathering space for events and activities year-round. Construction is anticipated to begin in mid-September.

An open house meeting about the project is scheduled for Tuesday,
August 27 from 5-7 p.m.
in the Community Room at City Hall.

We encourage you to visit for the latest information about the project and suggested alternate routes.
