Traffic Impacts Complete

The intersection was converted to a single-lane roundabout in Spring 2022. Major traffic impacts are now complete, but drivers should remain aware at the intersection and follow guiding signage when applicable as crews complete final improvements. 

Construction will be complete by late fall 2022. 

Project Details

The primary purpose of this project is to replace the existing two-way stop controlled intersection of Route 250 (Broad Street Road) and Route 522 (Cross County Road) with a single-lane roundabout. 

Benefits 

A roundabout has been chosen to improve the safety and efficiency of the intersection.

Roundabouts are safer than traffic signals and conventional stop-controlled intersections because traffic can continually and efficiently flow through the intersection and vehicle operating speeds are lower. Additionally, roundabouts help reduce air pollution and fuel use compared to a signalized intersection due to reduced idling and less acceleration and deceleration.
