wayzata boulevard reconstruction

County Road 112 in Long Lake and Orono

Full closure planned for October 15

On Monday, October 15, we will close Wayzata Boulevard (County Road 112) to through traffic between Wolf Pointe Trail and Wayzata Boulevard West. This is the last scheduled full closure for this phase of Wayzata Boulevard reconstruction.

There will be access for local traffic, but the road will be completely closed approximately 200 feet east and west of the Luce Line Trail overpass. We need to close the road to safely and efficiently replace utility crossings located underneath the road and reconstruct the road. 

The Luce Line Trail will remain open during this work.

We expect this work to take up to 12 calendar days to complete and reopen to traffic on Friday, October 26. Due to the nature of the work and the weather, the schedule is subject to change.


Map of the closure and construction area

Detour for the full closure

During the closure, signs will guide people to the detour using Highway 12.

Due to the nature of the work, the geography of the area and the levels of traffic local streets are designed for, all motor vehicle traffic will need to use the official detour.

Using the detour will keep our crews safe. It will also keep you from experiencing delays and getting frustrated. And it keeps the neighborhood traffic safer for the individuals and families who live, work and play in the area.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Shoreline area reconstruction wrapping up

In October, crews will wrap up final construction activities along the shoreline area between Martha Lane and Wolf Pointe Trail.

Weather permitting, final construction activities over the next month will include:

  • Constructing a trail crossing to connect the Long Lake City and shoreline trails.
  • Paving the final layer of asphalt between Martha Lane and Wolf Pointe Trail.
  • Constructing the Long Lake monument signs at Brown Road and Long Lake City Trail.
  • Striping permanent traffic lines.
  • Landscaping with grass.

During the construction of the trail crossing and final paving, please anticipate traffic impacts with road configuration changes and intermittent lane closures. 

Please give yourself extra time to travel through the area. For your safety and the safety of our crews, we ask that you slow down and follow the instructions of our crews and signage.

Minor sidewalk repairs scheduled 

Within the next two to three weeks, crews will repair damaged panels of sidewalks between Brown Road (County Road 146) and Martha Lane.

Weather permitting, it will take up to two days in order for crews to remove the damaged panels, form and pour the new concrete.

People walking and rolling should expect intermittent access impacts where crews are working. However, we will keep at least one side of the sidewalks open at all times.
