The roundabout construction at Fitchrona Road and Nesbitt Road is nearly complete and will be open to traffic at 2pm on Friday October 4, 2019. Fitchrona Road between Lacy Road and Nesbitt Road will remain closed due to flooding under the USH 151 bridges. City staff are continuing to monitor the water levels and will open this to traffic as soon as safely possible.
Landscaping within the construction area will continue over the next few weeks, but will be limited to off peak times of 9am to 3pm. During those times you can expect to see contractors and equipment that may temporarily block traffic or create some delays. Please slow down and be extra vigilant while traveling through the active construction zone.
The 1.4 million dollar intersection improvement was completed by Integrity Grading and Excavating and designed by AECOM. The project opening date of October 2 was nearly met if not for the rain that occurred right at the end of the project that prevented the pavement markings from being completed. The roundabout will reduce delays and backups that were witnessed with the 4-way stop. The intersection improvements have been designed to accommodate traffic growth to occur over the next 25+ years. We thank you all for your patience during the past 3 months.
