Mill Street Construction and Detour Information

Mill Street/County Road 82 Schedule

Many residents are not aware of this, but Mill Street is not a City street.  It is a Hennepin County highway from the Hennepin/Carver County boundary to the Five-Corners intersection in Excelsior.  The City does not have jurisdiction over traffic or other roadway operations on Mill Street.  To replace the failing watermain on Mill Street, the City is required to apply for a permit from Hennepin County, Carver County, and the Minnesota Department of Transportation for the work included in the project, and all permitting agencies must approve of temporary traffic control measures, closures, and posted detours.  The requirements of temporary closures on the County Highway System strictly require officially posted detours to route traffic to other highways such as county or state routes that can accommodate the traffic.  The project team has worked with all of the permitting authorities involved and the South Lake Police Department to improve the temporary traffic control layout to accommodate local traffic to the greatest extent possible and to provide local access, but access through the project will be limited and alternate routes will be necessary during the active construction operations period.  We understand that there will be inconvenience during the project operations, but ask for your patience as the contractor works to complete the necessary infrastructure improvements on Mill Street.
