Roundabout Update: REVISED
See road closure maps and detours
Beginning the week of August 28th, the following road openings and closures will be in place:
Street CLOSURES (see road closure and detour maps below)
- BOTH Hebron Ave lanes within the project limits WEST of the roundabout will be CLOSED. More specifically, the closures begin roughly around the Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins retail plaza and continue to the New London Turnpike Intersection. (Businesses will remain open during construction!)
- Southbound New London Turnpike lanes will also be CLOSED to through traffic
- Both lanes on the EAST leg of Hebron Avenue are now open
- The Northbound side of New London Turnpike is Now OPEN
The maps below depict the road closures and detour travel paths. Please note, this is the final phase of this project and the Town is projecting a completion date within the next 4-6 weeks. As always, this timeline is subject to change as weather and other factors may influence work. Following the road completion, landscaping and other additional work may require short term detours, however they will not have a sustained impact on traffic operations. As a reminder, ALL businesses will remain open throughout the construction. Please help us support our business community by using the marked detours (additional reference maps below) and continue to patron your favorite local businesses.
