County Road 13 renovations will affect Oakdale/Lake Elmo residents
Olson Lake Trail/Ideal Avenue is in rough shape and needs attention. That’s the assessment of Washington County traffic engineers, who say patching the busy thoroughfare, also known as County State Aid Highway 13, is no longer cost-effective.  
They’ve drawn up several options that they believe would address city, county and residents’ concerns. The plans call for resurfacing and possibly reconstructing about 1.7 miles of the road bordering Oakdale and Lake Elmo.

Residents question the need for additional bus lanes 
"Lake Elmo said no; why can't we?" was the question repeated by many Oakdale residents during a heated town hall meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 13.
The Lake Elmo City Council recently rejected a proposal for a bus rapid transit line to run along the town's southern border. It was an unexpected turn-around, as the council had previously voted unanimously in support of the proposed public transit line near Interstate 94.
