County board updated on traffic impacts near East Ridge High School, Woodbury
The Washington County Board of Commissioners was updated on projected traffic impacts and possible improvements to roadways in the vicinity of the East Ridge High School in the City of Woodbury during the board's April 28 meeting.
The new high school will open in fall 2009.
Increased traffic on surrounding roadways is expected to increase at that time, especially on Radio Drive (County Road 13), Bailey Road (County Road 18), and Woodbury Drive (County Road 19).
County staff has been working actively with the city of Woodbury and School District 833 to ensure that the roadway system is capable of handling these new traffic demands.
Some roadway improvements have already been made and possible interim improvements are being considered.
