Two new roundabouts are set to open next month as part of the voter-approved transportation General Obligation Bond program.
The intersection of Brookswood Boulevard and Powers Road is scheduled to re-open to traffic on Friday, November 16. The roundabout at 18th Street and Empire Avenue is scheduled to open on Wednesday, November 21.
Both these dates are subject to change, depending on weather conditions over the next few weeks.
"We know that these street improvement projects can be an inconvenience to neighbors and commuters," says Nick Arnis, city transportation engineering manager.
"The city would like to express its thanks for the community's patience during construction and for supporting the G.O. Bond program," he said.
The 2011 G.O. Bond measure authorized $30 million for seven separate projects which were selected based on known safety and congestion issues, geographic location, and the opportunity to provide local construction jobs.
