Third stage construction begins this afternoon
Crews are nearly ready to begin third stage construction at the Shoreline Drive (County Road 15) and Shadywood Road (County Road 19) intersection in Orono.
At some point in the afternoon today, July 10, crews will shift to the northwest corner of the intersection. Like previous stages, construction activities during this stage will include:
- removing existing pavement
- replacing underground utility lines
- rebuilding the deteriorating curbs and gutters
- replacing the pavement substructure and repaving
- constructing new sidewalks and curb ramps
Crews anticipate it will take about three weeks to complete the work in this area. At that point, they will move to the fourth of the project's six stages.
Expect changes as you travel through the area
The intersection will remain open during construction.
We will also keep open one lane of traffic in each direction. Sidewalks will remain open on one side of the road. And, we will keep access to local businesses open during construction.
However, people should expect roadway turning restrictions, lane configuration and access changes and sidewalk closures, as we change between stages. For more information visit the Hennepin County Website.
