County Highway 16 (Valley Creek Road)

  • Over the last few years, the quality of the ride (smoothness) of Valley Creek Road has started to decrease.  In response to this, Washington County has hired a contractor to grind the concrete pavement to   improve the smoothness.
  • This work is scheduled in October, will be completed in two stages, and is expected to take about two weeks to complete.  During the first stage of work, westbound Valley Creek Road will be closed.  During the second stage of work, eastbound Valley Creek Road will be closed.   During these closures, traffic will be detoured onto Bielenberg Drive, Tamarack Road, and Radio Drive (as shown on the map below). 
  • A week prior to work beginning, message boards will be installed on the roadway to provide advance notice of this work and closures. If you have any questions, contact the Washington County Project Engineer, Allan Brandt at (651) 430-4348 or
