2018 Waverly Lake East Side Street and Utility Improvements

Project Overview

The City of Waverly is undergoing major sanitary and watermain improvements around Waverly Lake. The first phase of the improvements is the Waverly Lake East Side Street & Utility Improvements project. The project begins at the intersections of North Second Street and Atlantic Avenue. The improvements continue north on Dempsey Avenue Southwest (CSAH 9) all the way around the east side of the lake to North Shore Drive. The project goes west on North Shore Drive about 1000 feet. There will also be improvements to Wilson Street and Terrace Boulevard.

The proposed construction includes a sanitary sewer lift station and forcemain, gravity sanitary sewer, watermain and storm improvements. Dempsey Avenue Southwest will also be reconstructed along with the addition of a shared-use path and retaining walls. Kuechle Underground is the Prime Contractor for this project and is scheduled to start the last week in April. Xcel Energy, CenterPoint Energy, Comcast and Windstream are all conducting utility improvements during construction.

Construction Updates

November 8, 2018

Paving has begun!  North Shore Drive was paved yesterday, November 7th and they are currently paving Wilson Drive and Terrace Blvd. They will begin on CSAH 9 today and paving will continue through next Monday or Tuesday. On Monday, the contractor will begin doing the bituminous driveways. Only the driveways of permanent residents will be done this year, seasonal driveways will get done next year.

The road will continue to stay closed after the paving as there is still cleanup work to do. Through traffic should continue to use the detour until the road closed signs have been taken down. 

Mailboxes will be put  back to their original places late next week. 

I cannot thank all the residents enough for your patience during the project!  This has been a long construction season and we appreciate your patience!


Q: Where do I put my garbage cans?

A: Bring your garbage and recycling out to the curb as normal.  If sanitation trucks are unable to reach your bins, the contractor will bring them to a coordinated location and return them after they have been emptied.

Q: Where do I get the mail?

A: Temporary mailboxes will be set up at the edge of the project area or at the post office. You will be notified when the mail is routed to temp mailboxes.

Q: Who do I call when I am on temporary water and there is no water getting to my house?

A: If there is ANY issues with the temporary water, please immediately call James Mickelson at 320-212-0078.
