Drivers will encounter county road detours
County Road 22 (70th Street South) has been closed to traffic between County Road 19 (Keats Avenue) and Jamaica Avenue in Cottage Grove. The closure will remain in effect for about 90 days.
The detour route will be Jamaica Avenue on the west, County Road 20 (Military Road) on the north, and County Road 19 on the east.
The Washington County road project involves consolidating two closely spaced four-way stops on County Road 19 (Keats Avenue) into one roundabout. While the county is building a new alignment of County Road 20, the South Washington County Watershed District is also building a portion of its regional drainage system in the area of the new highway alignment.
