Driveway access will be maintained during the majority of construction. There will be some concrete work where driveways meet the road. This work will include removal of the old concrete curb and replacement on new concrete curb and a concrete apron. To complete this work, concrete is poured out of a truck and takes about five days to harden (cure). While this concrete is hardening, vehicles will not be allowed to drive over the soft concrete. Advance notice of when work is expected to occur will be provided to residents during construction.
The County and the City will not assess individual property owners for this project.
This project is expected to start in June of this year. The majority of the work for this project is expected to occur in June, July, and August. Some final cleanup could also occur in September.
Normal working hours for this project will be Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Upon approval from the County and City, the contractor may also request to work on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM. No work will be allowed on Sundays.
We do not expect delivery services will be distributed as a result of this project, with the expectation to driveway work described above. Some mailbox posts will be temporary relocated as part of the project, to allow work during construction.
If you have a mailbox on Stillwater Boulevard, your mail box post will be replaced with a swing-away type post at no cost to you as part of the project. Your existing mailbox will be attached to the new post. After the new mailbox post is installed, your old mailbox post will be left onsite for one week. If you wish to keep your old mail box post, please move it away from the new mailbox post. After one week, the old mailbox posts will be removed off site.
The swing-away post facilitates County snow removal and provides improved safety should a vehicle collide with it. You have the opportunity to decline the mailbox post replacement. If you wish to decline the mail box post replacement, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (651) 430-4336. If you decline, your existing mailbox and post will remain in place.
We do not expect trash or recycling services will be distributed as a result of this project.
Stillwater Boulevard will be open to traffic for the duration of the project; however, traffic may be restricted to one-way travel at times. During the restrictions, flaggers will be used to alert drivers to closures and delays.
The sidewalk will be closed for the majority of this project to connect water service lines into the new watermain and to construct the new curb.
While water service lines are connected to the new watermain, the water service will be shut off. These lines will be shut off for less than 1 day.
Residents that live near the project should expect to see dust and hear noise from construction equipment. To help limit the amount of dust in the air, water or a dust palliative will be sprayed on gravel surfaces.
Neither Washington County nor the City of Oakdale have control over the speed limit, however, it is expected to remain at its currently posted limit (35 and 40 miles per hour).
Seed will be placed for turf establishment where necessary along the project limits. These items are placed and then left to nature to establish. If you, as the property owner, currently maintain the County’s right-of-way the same as your yard, it would be recommended for you to water these restored areas and minimize the mowing until the seed has completely established.
