Woodbury Drive—from Park Crossing to south of Lake Road—is set to close Wednesday, April 24. That stretch of road is expected to be closed for about three months as Washington County expands the street to four lanes from Park Crossing to a quarter mile south of Bailey Road.

Meanwhile, East Ridge High School sent out a notice about the work’s impact on traffic.
It’s feeling like that old saying about Minnesota having two seasons is true… The city of Woodbury on Monday sent out an updated schedule for this year’s roadwork projects, noting that drivers should expect delays, especially during rush hours. The Woodbury Drive (County Road 19) project is expected to begin April 22. Plans call for the road to be expanded from two lanes to four from Park Crossing south to Saint Ambrose.

The work could begin this fall or in 2014.
Washington County plans to construct a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of Radio Drive and Military Road in Woodbury. The county had planned some road improvements in the area and will also begin expanding Radio Drive from Bailey Road to Hargis Parkway this spring, and it made sense to consider the roundabout at this point, said Cory Slagle, Washington County transportation manager. The county isn’t sure if the work would begin this fall or in 2014, he said. A feasibility study must also be completed. “It’s not fully definite yet,” Slagle said. While it would be a single-lane roundabout, it could be expanded in the future—the county plans to eventually make Radio Drive a four-lane road at Military Road. “We would design it with …

No one was injured in the crash, which happened just before 2:30 p.m. Monday.
The back end of a truck was clipped by another vehicle as it went through the roundabout at Radio Drive and Bailey Road, sending the Ford F-150 on its side Monday afternoon. No one was injured in the crash, which was surprising, said Allan Olson, Woodbury police officer/paramedic. Police got the call at 2:26 p.m. Monday, Jan. 21. A juvenile driver, with four other people in his 2007 Nissan Murano, was heading southbound on Radio Drive when he failed to yield at the roundabout and hit the truck, a 2013 model that had been purchased only a month ago, Olson said. The truck turned on its side and slid along the road but did not fully roll over, he said. A father and his daughter were in the truck; they were heading to the airport, Olson said. …

Washington County officials also detailed why the Radio Drive-Hargis Parkway intersection will have a signal instead of a roundabout.
As Woodbury prepares for a new mixed-use development at the southwest corner of Radio Drive and Bailey Road, the City Council on Wednesday approved plans for roadway expansion in the area. Radio Drive will be expanded from two lanes to four from Bailey Road to Hargis Parkway, and a third pedestrian underpass will be installed near the Radio-Bailey intersection. (County staff is busy with other projects, so Woodbury is acting as the lead agency for the roadwork.) Bielenberg Gardens, which calls for retail, commercial and residential growth across 200 acres at the site, “is really driving this project,” City Engineer Klayton Eckles said. The developer wants to move forward with the work, and Woodbury is hoping to begin construction next May …
