"Farmington and River Roads Intersection Project location map"This open house was active from Aug. 13-29, 2021. Information on this website may no longer be current. Email us for more information.


The Farmington and River roads intersection sees a lot of traffic. During commute times, travelers have long waits to get through the intersection. An all-way stop is limiting traffic in all directions.

A traffic study was done early last year and the information was presented at an online open house. We found that a roundabout, off-center and southwest of the current intersection, is the best option.

All the intersection options impacted the Cruise in County Diner. We bought property in May to provide these much-needed improvements to the intersection of Farmington and River roads. The purchase benefited both Washington County travelers and the owners of the diner, who were ready to retire.

The $6.3 million project is funded through the Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP 3e).
