Douglas Drive

The City of Golden Valley and Hennepin County are partnering to reconstruct Douglas Drive (County Rd 102) between Olson Memorial Hwy (Hwy 55) and Medicine Lake Rd (County Rd 70). The major reconstruction activity will take two years to complete and is being led by Hennepin County.

2017 Pavement Management Program

The 2017 PMP includes streets in the area just north of Lakeview Park.

Hwy 169 Improvement

MnDOT is rebuilding and rehabilitating the infrastructure on Hwy 169 between Hwy 55 and Hwy 62. Work includes replacing the Hwy 169 bridge over Nine Mile Creek in Hopkins, Minnetonka, and Edina (which requires closure of Hwy 169 at this location during 2017), closing the sub-standard highway ramps at 16th St, improving the safety of entrances and exit ramps at the Cedar Lake Rd interchange, and repairing pavement throughout the corridor.

The construction is expected to cause major traffic impacts due to the year-long closure of Hwy 169 at the bridge location and reduction of traffic to one lane in the remaining project areas.

Upcoming Projects

 

10th Ave Culvert Replacement

Starting late summer 2017, City crews will begin replacing the culverts that carry Bassett Creek under 10th Ave and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks between the Golden Valley Library and the end of Rhode Island Ave N. On May 2, 2017, the City closed 10th Ave N between Winnetka Ave and Rhode Island Ave N due to concerns related the condition of the culverts. Traffic is detoured to Golden Valley Rd and Winnetka Ave.

The aging metal culverts, classified as bridges because of their size, are inspected annually and have shown rapid deterioration. Work will involve digging up the street, Luce Line Trail, and railroad track to replace the culverts with a concrete box culvert similar to the one just installed in Bassett Creek across Douglas Dr.

The project is expected to take two to three months to complete. Access will be maintained to all adjacent properties while work is under way.

More information will be provided closer to the project start date.
