The public is invited to an open house Thursday, April 13 on improvements to the intersection at South Coddington Avenue and West Van Dorn Street. The meeting is from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at Roper Elementary School, 2323 South Coddington Avenue. The public may park in the main lot northeast of the building and enter through door 19. No formal presentation is planned.
The project will replace the intersection with a single-lane roundabout to reduce vehicle crashes. The project includes the phased construction of new concrete pavement, trails, sidewalks and box culvert extensions, installation of a new storm drainage system and new signage, pavement markings and street lighting.
The phasing will allow at least three legs of the intersection will remain open during construction. Drivers should expect single-lane closures and detour routes will be posted at the site. Construction is scheduled to begin April 24 and be completed in October.
Information about detours and construction phasing will be available at the open house.
