County Road 112 in Long Lake and Orono

Preliminary construction work begins Monday

In preparation for the upcoming reconstruction of Wayzata Boulevard (County Road 112), preliminary work on the roadway will start Monday, April 10.

Crews will be:

  • Setting up traffic controls and placing temporary signals at the Willow Drive and Brown Road (County Road 146) intersections
  • Removing road lines overnight
  • Removing segments of median strips

Removing road lines overnight

Starting Monday, April 10 at 9 p.m., crews will remove fog lines, the solid white lines at the right edge of the road, from Willow Drive to Wolf Pointe Trail until Tuesday, April 11 at 6 a.m.

This is in preparation for upcoming lane shifts and reductions. During fog line removal, traffic will be guided towards the inner lanes along Wayzata Boulevard.

Removing segments of median strips

Segments of median strips from Willow Drive to just past Brown Road will be removed starting Tuesday, April 11.

The work is being completed to prepare for pavement removal, and to make sure access to businesses remain open during preliminary work and reconstruction. During the removal process, center lanes will close, moving traffic to the outer most lanes. 

Please be aware that there will be large construction equipment, and noise, vibrations and dust will be associated with this work.

When preliminary work finishes, reconstruction of Wayzata Boulevard will begin.

Getting around the area and staying safe

The current work requires temporary lane shifts and reductions, but we do not anticipate any full road or driveway closures for the immediate future.

It is important to follow the speed limits and signs, and stay alert in this area, including during evenings and weekends. Traffic changes, construction crews, equipment and work areas near the roadway will require extra attention from road users.

Signage and electronic message boards are being placed today to inform road users of construction-related activity.
