In mid-September, work is planned to begin on the Lake Street reconstruction project. 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.
An open house meeting about the project is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, August 27 from 5-7 p.m. in the Community Room at City Hall. Learn more about the project at NavigateWayzata.com.
