County Road 112 in Long Lake and Orono

Crews constructing permanent roadway components along shoreline 

Last week began permanent roadway work along the southern half of Wayzata Boulevard between Martha Lane and Wolf Pointe Trail. 

One of the activities was grading. Grading consists of making up base layers of gravel. These layers are critical structural elements of the roadway. They provide a stable foundation needed to support the new curbs and pavement.

This week, crews completed the grading work and made significant progress on other roadway components, such as installing new curbs and driveway aprons, throughout the shoreline area.


New curbs and driveway aprons were formed and poured between Martha Lane and Wolf Pointe Trail this week.

Crews will return next week to grade behind the curbs with black dirt and pave the first two layers of asphalt for the new roadway. 

Trail crossing construction and final paving to follow

Once all the construction activities above are completed, crews will construct a trail crossing to connect the Long Lake City and shoreline trails.

People using the trails will have a new feature, a pedestrian refuge island. The island provides a break point for people crossing the road, should they need it. It also helps make the crossing more visible.

When the construction of the trail crossing is completed, crews will pave the final layer of asphalt, or "wear course," between Martha Lane and Wolf Pointe Trail.

Underground utility and grading work continue 

Between Glenmoor Lane and Wayzata Boulevard West

Crews are continuing watermain and storm sewer work on Wayzata Boulevard between just west of Glenmoor Lane and Old Long Lake Road. Underground utility work in the area is expected to continue for the next two weeks. Roadway grading will follow.

Crews will be grading between Old Long Lake Road and Wayzata Boulevard West next week to prepare for concrete curbs and paving.
