For the next week, crews will be paving the final layer of asphalt, or wear course, throughout the Douglas Dr (County Rd 102) corridor. Final paving is one of the last steps of the reconstruction process prior to reopening the roadway.
Over the next six weeks, crews will begin wrapping up construction in key areas of the Douglas Dr (County Rd 102) reconstruction project. Crews will continue to work hard to get Douglas Dr fully reopened between Duluth St (County Rd 66) and Hwy 55. The goal is to have it opened by early December.
Volunteers are needed to help City and Hennepin County staff plant trees and other vegetation along Winnetka Ave Oct 21 from approximately 9 am to noon. Light refreshments and a lunch will be served. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Hennepin County Forester Jen Kullgren at 612-596-1175.
