Roadway Rehabilitation 2023
The City of Woodbury planned a road rehabilitation and utility replacement project in the Royal Oaks neighborhood in 2022 and 2023. In November 2021, City Council voted not to move the project forward as planned and the project was moved to 2023-24.
The scope of the project is still being determined, but is tentatively planned to include pavement rehabilitation, curb replacement, trail rehabilitation and construction, water main replacement, water service replacement, storm sewer rehabilitation and replacement, sanitary sewer rehabilitation, and sanitary sewer service replacement.
This project will likely include significant underground utility work. The water main in this area has a history of breaks and a significant portion of the main will need to be replaced. Individual service lines will also need to be replaced to each property. This will have a substantial impact to all homeowners and properties in the area, with temporary water shut-offs and temporary roadway closures. Due to the size of the project, we anticipate construction extending through 2024.
We requested feedback from the neighborhood in 2020 and 2021 and are looking for additional feedback to help determine the scope of the project.

The project would include repaving all roads within the neighborhood. All curb will also likely be replaced. If curb is replaced, the city will be required to disturb approximately 5 feet into the yards behind the curb. Any private features (irrigation, dog fence, landscaping, etc.) that will be impacted by construction are the responsibility of the homeowner to protect. The city cannot reimburse residents for any private features damaged by construction located within the city's right-of-way (approximately 12 feet behind the curb).
The city is currently reviewing the condition of water main and sanitary sewer in the neighborhood. Based on the age and history of water main breaks, the city will likely replace a significant amount of water main as a part of the project. As a part of the water main replacement, individual water services would also be replaced. In order to complete this work, temporary water would need to be supplied to all homeowners through overland pipes. Short-term water shut-offs (8 hours or less) will likely be necessary to complete this work.
Sanitary sewer is also being considered to be rehabilitated through lining or replacement. Sanitary services may also be replaced for some homeowners. This work is not anticipated to impact wastewater disposal for homeowners.
Based on city policies within the 2040 Comprehensive Plan and the Roadway Corridor Design Principles, additional trails along roadways within the neighborhood will be proposed with the 2023 Roadway Rehabilitation project. Proposals to reconstruct residential roadways with trails will consider a number of neighborhood context items such as tree impacts, right-of-way constraints, drainage, driveway grades and maintenance. These considerations will be reviewed as locations for trails are identified.
