Road closures of County Road 101 along Lake Minnetonka slated to reopen this month – StarTribune.com

A popular road that connects Lake Minnetonka communities is finally slated to reopen to traffic. Crews are planning to reopen this week a big stretch of Bushaway Road, part of County Road 101 — wrapping up two years of road closures for more than 11,000 motorists a day who use the winding lake road. Since May, the county has closed a nearly 2-mile stretch of the road to through traffic between Minnetonka Boulevard (County Road 5) and McGinty Road near Grays Bay. That stretch is scheduled to reopen Friday, and a new bridge over the BNSF railroad tracks is slated to open Nov. 1.The tree-lined road is considered the eastern gateway to Lake Minnetonka and a local scenic byway.”We are excited to reopen this important link between Minnetonka, Woodland and Wayzata,” Hennepin County project engineer Dan Allmaras said via e-mail. Crews have repaved and widened the century-old road from Minnetonka to Wayzata as well as added turn lanes and new sewers, installed a bike and pedestrian trail and replaced what was supposed to be a temporary bridge over the railroad tracks.
