Olive Street between Second and Third Streets will be closed for for Utility Improvements of the Apartment Building and Storm Water Improvements of Alley between Olive and Elm Streets.

The work and closure will commence on Tuesday, August 22nd and go through a period of four weeks depending on the weather.

On the reverse side you will find the Detour Route and Closure Information. Accesses near the intersections will be accessible and at times sometimes constraint due to utility improvements specific to the north half of the closure near Second Street.

The detour map can be seen below. 

Storm sewer improvements scheduled for the Public Access of Lake Waconia directly off Lakeview Terrace Boulevard will start on Monday August 21st, 2023.

The storm water improvements are part of the 2023 Capital Improvement Program.  City Council awarded the improvements to Schneider Excavating and Grading, Inc.

During this process the Boat Access will be closed for launching during the week.  Once work is completed enough to allow access for boats it will be open for access on weekends.  Personal craft may be carried in and out during the improvements. The project should take approximately three weeks depending on weather.

2023 Waterford Park Project

The Waterford Park play area construction will begin the first week of June. Trail and parking lot light bases will be installed, water lines will be put in place to support the community gardens, and the shelter will receive a new roof. Irrigation will be installed around the play system once the lighting and water service have been completed. The parking lot is tentatively set for asphalt re-surfacing on Monday, May 22nd. On this date there will be on-street parking ONLY.

The new Waterford Park green space has been updated with irrigation. Restoration of the existing system will occur soon, and coincide with final site restoration. Weather permitting, the Waterford Park's estimated completion date is Fall 2023.
