The need: a stronger connection to Wayzata’s greatest asset – the lake.
This work is part of the Wayzata Lake Effect– an effort to reconnect residents to the City’s greatest asset, Lake Minnetonka. This community-led vision includes multiple projects and improvements that will create a cleaner, more connected, and more welcoming downtown and public lakefront that protects and celebrates the Lake Minnetonka experience.
Lake Street from Barry Avenue to Broadway Avenue will be reconstructed to be more pedestrian and bicycle friendly. A beautiful, multi-use Plaza Park near the lakefront, replacing the existing surface parking lot at Lake Street and Broadway Avenue will allow for additional gathering space for events and activities year-round.
Businesses will continue to be open and accessible during the construction, with detours allowing residents and visitors to access the lakefront and its incredible amenities while the project is being completed.
Construction of Lake Street and Plaza Park is slated to begin after Labor Day 2019.
