The Woodbury City Council discussed the concerns at Wednesday night’s meeting.

Councilwoman Amy Scoggins broached the topic during Wednesday night’s Woodbury City Council meeting. While picking up a daughter’s friend near the project area recently, Scoggins said she could barely back out of the driveway. “This could be really bad if people keep cutting through,” she said.

Construction is underway next to Mattress Firm.

The construction is the latest step toward a new $21.8 million facility.
Site grading, pond draining and lobby demolition at the Bielenberg Sports Center took place Tuesday, May 7.

Sidewalks are torn up but the doors are open.
While work on a building at Woodbury’s CityWalk development progresses, the businesses there are open. “It’s just a nuisance,” said Melissa Fink, co-owner of Wild Child Hair.
