Douglas Drive Construction Set To Begin Week Of June 27

Crews are scheduled to begin reconstructing Douglas Dr (County Rd 102) the week of June 27, weather permitting. There will be a detour for through traffic using Hwy 55, Winnetka Ave (County Rd 156), and Medicine Lake Rd (County Rd 70). This detour will be in effect until sometime this fall.

This project will improve connectivity, traffic flow, pedestrian safety, and aesthetics. Features include:

  • additional turn lanes
  • improved sidewalks
  • redesigned intersections
  • widened right-of–ways for shoulders and bike lanes
  • new streetlights and landscaping

The first phase of construction will occur between Duluth St and Medicine Lake Rd. There will also be work occurring on Duluth St
between Adair Ave N and Douglas Dr that will reduce the number of lanes of traffic in that area. Sign up here to get construction updates from Hennepin County.

Residents and businesses in the immediate construction area will receive regular communications from Hennepin County regarding local access.
