Washington County, in coordination with the City of Stillwater, conducted a design study to develop a plan for pedestrian and traffic improvements on County Road 5 in the City of Stillwater. The design study includes the entire corridor from Croixwood Boulevard to Highway 96 (Dellwood Road), except for the segment from Olive Street to Linden Street, and developed a slate of recommended future improvements to the corridor. The intersection of County Road 5 and Myrtle Street (County Road 12) was not included in the study.
Through the study analysis and public input received, a slate of recommendations were developed for future planning in the corridor. These improvements will be implemented subject to available funding and local approval. Washington County is proposing to construct, in 2018, a new traffic signal at Pine Street and a new trail connection on the west side of the roadway between Willard Street and Deer Path, providing a new link to connect the existing trails.
