The road reconstruction project for Hennepin County Road 101 (Bushaway Road) in Minnetonka, Woodland and Wayzata begins Thursday, September 25, 2014. At that time, Eastman Lane and McGinty Road in Wayzata will be closed to traffic with only local access permitted. During this initial phase of the construction, County Road 101 from Minnetonka Boulevard to U.S. Highway 12 will remain open. Work will also begin on the grading of County Road 101 just north of Minnetonka Boulevard at Breezy Point Curve and McKenzie Point Road in preparation for the installation of a roundabout. County Road 101 will remain open in this area during the start of this grading work.
As part of the project, crews will begin clearing trees and other vegetation per the approved construction plans. Next, utility work will begin followed by the reconstruction of the road.
County Road 101 (Bushaway Road) reconstruction is designed to address safety concerns. The new road will accommodate increased traffic and replace the aging roadway and infrastructure. Segments will be closed during different stages of construction. Completion is scheduled for 2016.
Drivers are reminded at all times to proceed with caution through all construction areas. For more information, visit www.hennepin.us/countyroad101, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the
