Welcome to the Historic Bushaway Road Neighborhood in Wayzata, MN. The Historic Bushaway Road became an official road 156 years ago, the first one registered after Minnesota became a state. Known for its beauty, the Bushaway residents and Wayzata City friends and leaders organized and worked together with the City and Hennepin County to complete in 2013 a road reconstruction plan that is much less damaging to the environment than the plan proposed seven years ago. For example, it will save 800 trees. The road work begins Oct. 2014 and will continue until 2015. During that time the Bushaway Task Force will continue to ensure that trees and historical character of the corridor are not lost. Watch for notices about reconstruction progress on this website.

In June, 2014, a fund-raising campaign was launched at Zita Hawley-Wrights house for a broadcast-quality film on Bushaway Road & how the neighbors organized to save the historic beauty of the road.
The film is being produced by Steve Doyle; he has already logged many days filming interviews, houses, trees, and environmental aspects of Bushaway. More donations are needed to cover the full cost of the film. (Contact Ron Anderson for details.)

Jack Amdal Honored in July, 2014 for his leadership of the Bushaway Task force for Seven Years.
In a celebration organized by Wayzata City Mayor Willcox, the Bushaway residents and others active in saving the Bushaway ecology awarded Jack Amdal an Outstanding Service Award for his Leadership as Chair of the Bushaway Task Force and as a member of the City Council.

Construction of the McGinty/Bushaway Intersection and Railroad Bridge begins in October, 2014 - Parts of Bushaway Road will be Closed to Through Traffic for about 15 months ending January 1, 2015
Landscaping work will continue after that date.Look for bulletins of progress and schedule change here on this webpage.
