Construction began May 14, 2013, with an estimated completion date of September 20, 2013. There are approximately 8 miles of streets within this project, which will require phased construction based on the three different types (zones) of construction identified on this brochure and the attached Project Map.
Residents will be given notification of any temporary access restrictions. Onstreet parking within the construction zone will be prohibited during working hours, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m Monday-Friday.
Street construction is weather dependent, therefore the schedule is subject to change. Local access to neighborhoods and individual properties will be maintained as much as possible.
The Kingston Park Improvements will take place within the park beginning late July through mid August. The Park will remain open during this period of time. The work involved will include the rehabilitation of the central parking lot and access drive to 75th Street, along with construction of several new bituminous trail segments, and a shelter structure with picnic tables

For the most up-to-date information on this project, visit the Washington County construction page where you can also sign up to receive weekly project updates. Construction began in May.
This Washington County project will realign 70th Street and reconstruct sections of County Road 19 (Keats Avenue S). A roundabout will be constructed off of County Road 19 and 70th Street. County Road 19 will remain open, maintaining one lane in each direction.
An open house was held Tuesday, April 30, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Washington County Cottage Grove Service Center, 1300 Ravine Parkway South.for viewing of construction phasing plans and detour maps.
Due to the rain, the Contractor has altered the schedule of how things will be constructed concerning both the curb and gutter installation and when the concrete driveway aprons will be constructed. After the completion of the curb and gutter, the concrete driveway apron construction will immediately follow the curb and gutter installation.
The revised schedule and parking instructions (please note that the construction schedule is dependent upon the weather). The construction activities planned are as follows:
Access During Construction
The string for the curb and gutter will be set up by Thursday night, May 9. All vehicles need to be parked either on the road or on the streets of The Water’s at Michael’s Pointe (see Resident Letter 04/26/13 for map). If the vehicles are left on the Preserve streets, they need to be moved off site by 7:00 AM Friday morning, May 10.
During the day on Friday, May 10 and Monday, May 13, the streets will be filled with construction vehicles and concrete trucks and therefore we cannot have vehicles parked on the streets. The same parking concerns apply for Tuesday, May 14 and Wednesday, May 15 concrete driveway aprons are being installed. After the driveway aprons are completed on Wednesday, May 15 you may park your vehicles in the street. The curb and driveway aprons will need the remainder of the week and weekend for them to be strong enough for vehicle traffic. On Monday, May 20 the contractor will ramp the driveways and you will once again have access to your driveway.
The project involves reclaiming the existing temporary bituminous road surface and bituminous curb in the subdivision known as The Preserve of Cottage Grove. Once the reclamation is complete, the gravel base will be graded and new concrete curb and gutter will be installed. Then two lifts of bituminous will be placed for the new road surface. There will be sections of damaged sidewalk replaced as part of the project.
The project will be complete by mid-June.
The 2013 Street Seal Coating Project will begin in late May/early June of 2013 depending on weather conditions. Seal coating is a common preventive maintenance activity in Minnesota performed by most cities, counties, and MN/Dot districts.
Cars should not be parked on the streets that are being seal coated. "No parking" signs will be posted 24 hours in advance of seal coating.
The primary reason to seal coat a bituminous pavement is to protect the pavement from the deteriorating affects of sun and water. When the pavement is exposed to sun, wind and water, the bituminous hardens, causing the pavement to become more brittle. As a result, the pavement will crack because it is unable to bend and flex when exposed to traffic and temperature changes. A seal coat combats this situation by providing a waterproof membrane, which not only slows down the hardening process, but also helps the pavement to shed water, preventing it from entering the gravel sub-base material.
Please refer to map or call Public Works at 651-458-2808 with questions.
Work will resume mid- to late-May to complete the trail paving, pond grading, fence and concrete texturing on the underpass. Additional landscaping will be added in late summer.
The City plans on constructing a 10 foot x 14 foot concrete box culvert under 80th Street S. to act as a pedestrian underpass connecting both the north and south bituminous trails of the Central Draw.
Construction began Monday, May 6 and continue with final completion in mid September. The VFW will remain open.
The trunk water main and sanitary sewer across the VFW property has been completed by the contractor, Redstone. They will complete the VFW parking lot restoration Tuesday, May 14.
The contractor continues installing the trunk sewer and water main across the west side of the Walmart property along East Point Douglas Road.
Week of May 6 - project status for the East Point Douglas Utility and Street Improvement Project - Phase 1
The Contractor, Redstone, began the deep 30" sanitary sewer across the VFW property along the north side of East Point Douglas Road (as shown in the picture). They will continue installing the 30" diameter sewer and 24" diameter water main for the remainder of the week.
The VFW remains open.
The Walmart Development construction is underway.This will include the first phase of the mass site grading. This mass grading will continue through May for the purpose constructing storm water basins and the building site pad.
Walmart held a groundbreaking ceremony on May 8, 2013: Walmart breaks ground on Cottage Grove location.
The East Point Douglas Road improvements include reconstruction of the frontage road from the VFW site to Keats Avenue. The reconstruction includes concrete curb and gutter section for potential commercial development of the drive-in site.
The first phase of construction will include installation of the sanitary sewer and water main along the north side of East Point Douglas Road, beginning on the west side of the VFW, working to the east in front of the Walmart development area.
In addition, the first phase of construction will include the relocation of private utilities (telephone, gas, Comcast, and electric) within the existing East Point Douglas corridor that are in conflict with the City project.
The City Council awarded the East Point Douglas Road Utility and Street Improvement Project to Redstone Construction Co. Inc. on April 3, 2013.
A neighborhood meeting related to the project construction was held at City Hall on Thursday, April 25, 2013 (click link to see presentation - NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING PRESENTATION (04/25/13)).
