Existing Land Use and Development Constraints
Existing Land Use
The City of Marine on St. Croix is well served by a
combination of state, county, and local roads. The
transportation map shows the road system in Marine and
the functional classification of each existing road. A
description of the hierarchy of street functions follows.
A minor arterial street functions to collect traffic
from local streets and move it to principal arterials,
minor arterials and collector streets. Marine contains
three streets that can be classified as minor arterials,
TH 95, County Road 4, and County Road 7.
TH 95, an “A” minor arterial, is a two lane
state highway that carries traffic through Marine as well
as provides access to the collector streets and indirect
access to the Central Business District. There are no
improvements scheduled for this stretch of TH 95 through
the year 2020 beyond normal road maintenance.
County Road 7, an “A” minor arterial,
extends into Marine from the southwest, providing a minor
arterial connection between Marine and other County roads
and highways. Washington County has no plans to improve
County Road 7 within the next ten years, except for
possible minor improvements where the road intersections
County Road 4, classified as a “B” minor
arterial, provides an indirect east-west route and access
to local streets as well as some direct land access.
Washington County has no plans to improve this road
within the next ten years.
A collector street is intended to provide both
mobility and access to land and connects primarily to
minor arterials. Marine has two streets that can be
classified as collector streets, Judd Street and Broadway
west of County Road 4. Judd Street provides a north-south
route to the core of the city. It connects with County
Road 7 and TH 95. Broadway Street provides a direct
east/west route from the core of the City.

Local streets are intended to provide access to land within neighborhoods rather than to carry through traffic. Streets classified as local can be seen on the transportation map. Local streets in Marine have a small town character with varying widths and swales and ditches rather than curbs and gutters to deal with storm water.
A bicycle trail has been established in the City which
generally follows TH 95 with the exception of the central
part of the City, where the trail runs one block west of
TH 95 along local streets.
Easements for approximately five miles of walking
trails have been assembled over the last 20 years. The
trail easements generally run from the center of the City
outward, including William O’Brien State Park. Until
recently there have been gaps in the route, and,
therefore, development did not take place. Currently, the
trails are beginning to be developed by cutting brush and
