The City of Mound and Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) have announced a road closure, which may significantly impact your commute to and from the “Island Park” areas of Mound, Minnetrista, and Shorewood.
Wilshire Boulevard (CSAH 125), between Bartlett Boulevard and Bradford Road will be closed to all traffic, beginning at 7:00 AM on MONDAY, APRIL 3, 2017, continuing through the remainder of the year.
During this closure, the Emerald Bridge over Emerald Lake and Cooks Bay will be FULLY BLOCKED. The “Island Park” areas of Mound, Minnetrista, and Shorewood will be accessible ONLY from the EAST, via Interlachen Road (in Spring Park), over the Black Lake Bridge.
Major traffic delays should be expected during this closure.
This closure will allow MCES to continue upgrading sanitary sewer lines in the area, as part of the Mound Area Sewer and Lift Station Improvements Project. For more information on THIS PROJECT, please visit our website.
