Washington County seeks traffic study on 65th Street


A 2-mile stretch of one south Washington County road will be studied after neighboring residents have complained about inconsistent speed limits and sight-blocking intersections.

The winding stretch of 65th Street, or County Road 74, from Hastings Avenue in Newport to Hinton Avenue in Cottage Grove twists, turns, changes speed limits several times and has two blind intersections, one of which is near a school bus stop.
