Hennepin Canal project wraps up
Craig Sterrett
News Editor

WYANET — Barring rain, a long-term project to repave roads in the day use area and campground above Lock 21 on the Hennepin Canal was expected to be completed this week.

Canal superintendent Dave Hahne said he hoped the contractor could complete a second coating of pavement Monday.

He was hopeful the entire area would be reopened and devoid of construction equipment before Thursday, Independence Day.

The project began slowly in fall, with work on weekdays and the area west of Wyanet reopening on weekends this spring and summer.

Most of the rest of the Hennepin Canal State Parkway is open, though a more than five-mile stretch of the canal from near Lock 3 at Bureau upstream to Bridge 4 is marked as closed.
