This year's project will impact the Brookside, Savanna Oaks North and Woodbury Crossing neighborhoods as well as areas along Woodlane Drive and Wooddale Drive. For more information, visit the project page.
Each year, the city completes a reclamite project in designated areas to extend pavement life and contain materials within the original asphalt pavement. Reclamite is an oil-based pavement rejuvenator material that will be sprayed directly on the road surface, followed by the temporary application of a sand product.
The 2020 Reclamite is currently underway. The pavement is ready for vehicle traffic after sand is applied, approximately 15-20 minutes after the reclamite is placed. Construction is scheduled to be completed on Monday, June 29.

Washington County Projects
Woodbury Drive (County Road 19) and Local Road Capacity and Safety Improvements Project
Woodbury Drive is being expanded to better serve the increased traffic generated from the surrounding development.

In addition, the intersections at Woodbury Drive of Hudson Road, Commerce Drive and Tamarack Road will all be expanded to provided better access and mobility. Finally, new trails are being constructed to improve pedestrian connectivity in the area. This project is anticipated to be constructed spring of 2020 through fall of 2021.

I-94 East Metro Interchange Study
The I-94 East Metro interchange study in Woodbury, Oakdale and surrounding area focuses on finding the long-term vision for the interchange while ensuring that other projects in the interchange area are compatible with that vision.
Currently, MnDOT is reconstructing the East Metro I-94 Interchange to address deteriorated bridges and pavement (see above). This project work also includes low cost safety and capacity improvements. However, this work only addresses short-term condition issues. A long-term plan is needed for broader capacity and safety issues at the interchange. For more information, visit the project website.
