You are invited to attend a public information meeting for an intersection improvement to Shoreline Drive (County Road 15) at Arcola Lane in Minnetonka Beach.
The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday, February 5, at the Minnetonka Beach City Hall. There will be a short presentation at the beginning, followed by an opportunity to view display boards and talk with city and county staff.
About the project
Hennepin County is working with the City of Minnetonka Beach to study options for providing a safe and comfortable crossing for people crossing Shoreline Drive at Arcola Lane.
After recent observations of existing pedestrian crossings and examination of various location options, a site near Arcola Lane has been chosen for improvement. The improvements consist of raised medians and bump-outs. These improvements are designed to:
- encourage slower traffic speeds
- provide pedestrian crossing protection
- protect vehicles traveling from Arcola Lane to Shoreline Drive
- improve traffic guidance on Shoreline Drive
Through the public involvement process, county staff has refined designs based on community feedback. A proposed design will be shared with the City of Minnetonka Beach in February 2018. Once approved by the City of Minnetonka Beach, the project will move into detail design. This is anticipated to occur in spring/summer 2018. Construction could begin late 2018 or early 2019.
