Phase I reconstruction of Stillwater Road/75th Street (also known as County Highway 12) will begin in Spring of 2019. Reconstruction will include intersection and roadway improvements between Highway 244 and Hilton Trail. While advancing construction staging plans, the project team has determined that Stillwater Road needs to be closed to traffic during construction of Phase I. Road closures will occur in segments as construction crews make improvements. Signed detour routes will maintain access to the businesses and residences at all times during construction.
Prior to construction beginning, there will be opportunity to meet the project representatives and contractor to discuss specific items. It is anticipated that a public open house will be held in Spring of 2019. Closer to the date, an open house invite will be mailed and posted on the project website.
Stillwater Road/75th Street, which serves 9,900 vehicles per day, is an important east-west corridor for local and regional trips. The corridor provides access and connectivity within local communities. Adjacent land uses include Mahtomedi High School and Middle School, Wildwood Elementary School, the Mahtomedi Fire Station, Wildwood Library, commercial and residential properties, and institutional land uses.
A study, that determined the recommended project design, took place from December 2016 to March 2018. During each step of the project, Washington County, along with local community representatives, sought public input (see Public Involvement tab). The public input received guided the county in developing project goals and corridor concepts that align with issues, needs, and desired project outcomes.
