LAST UPDATE: Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Route 52 Roundabout Update

December 17, 2014
All work is complete with the exception of the mast mounted sign on the approach to the roundabout from the 926 side. The contractor is installing the footing today. Hopefully the mast will be installed Friday. The landscape plantings will be done in the spring of 2015. See current photos.

Our common goal is to have the road open to the traveling public by Christmas, this is contingent upon the weather. We will have temporary road closures for the remaining work that will continue through Spring of 2015.
