Minnewashta Parkway Update
The Contractor will be closing a short section of Minnewashta Parkway from the north side of the intersection at Landings Drive to TH 7 for a maximum of 5 days beginning next Monday. The contractor needs to excavate across the street in order to finish the replacement of the watermain. Signage will be added in this area to clearly delineate this road closure. Access to Minnewashta Parkway from TH 7 will be temporarily unavailable as the turn lanes in TH 7 will be barreled off. Please utilize alternate routing during this closure such as diverting south along Minnewashta Parkway to TH 5 or utilizing the access to TH 7 at Leslee Curve.
Other work will also be occurring on the watermain such as hydrant installations, tie-ins, and work on a few services. Storm sewer work will begin from Glendale Drive to Linden Circle weather permitting. Site restoration will continue to occur during this time as well. Trail work and curb replacement work will begin after the storm sewer task is completed. There will also be some lining work occurring in the sanitary sewer system.
Be aware of the coned off areas along Minnewashta Parkway between Kings Road and Glendale Drive. Please proceed with caution through this area as manhole castings and gate valve boxes are being raised in preparation for paving the final lift of asphalt.
