Scenic Detour!


On Monday morning, 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 along most of the construction area, but the road will completely close approximately 200 feet east and west of the Luce Line Trail overpass. Please see the map below.

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 days to complete and reopen to traffic by Friday, October 26. Due to the nature of the work and the weather, the schedule is subject to change.

During the closure, you will be able to get to your place of work, and customers, clients or patients will be able to get to your business using the detour route and/or local roads. Please see the attached detour route for your use. Changeable message boards and additional detour signs will guide people to the detour using Highway 12. When using local or alternate routes, please be mindful of your neighbors and adhere to all posted speed limits.
