What is CenterPoint Energy doing?

Crews from Michels, an authorized contractor from CenterPoint Energy, are working on the intersection of County Road 101 and Central Avenue S. in Wayzata.

They will have the intersection open for local residents but shut down for thru-traffic. The shutdown begins at Circle Drive E. and goes north on Central Avenue S. to the southern driveway of the Boardwalk Senior Living at 150 Central Avenue S. This will be in place until July 1.

Will there be lane closures?

In the week of July 4, there will be lane closures but no detours at the intersection of County Road 101 and Central Avenue S. County Road 101 westbound lanes will be down to one open lane. County Road 101/Wayzata Blvd eastbound traffic will not be able to turn north onto County Road 101.

This traffic obstruction will last from July 5 to July 8 to include restoration.  Afterward the intersection will be returned to normal. ​



6/20/2016 Update​

CenterPoint Energy is continuing its project of installing the 12-inch steel pipeline in Wayzata on Central Avenue S.
 
Crews have moved south, out of the intersection of County Road 101 and Central Avenue S. They will no longer be obstructing or diverting traffic in that intersection.
 
South of the intersection, crews will be closing Central Avenue S. in both directions to all but local residents. This will happen for at least the next week from the intersection south to E. Circle Drive.
 
After the E. Circle Drive work is done, crews will return to the intersection of County Road 101 and Central Avenue S. in at least two weeks from June 20.​
