The House Street / Hebron Avenue Roundabout will be constructed in the Spring of 2018. This roundabout will be a safety solution for the high volume of vehicular accidents occurring at this intersection.

NEW - October 20, 2017 - Detour and Median Installment at House St./Hebron Avenue Intersection the Week of October 23rd.
Beginning next week, (mid-week of October 23rd), a raised median island will be placed on Hebron Avenue and a raised channelization island will be constructed at the intersection of House Street and Hebron Avenue. These islands will prohibit LEFT hand turns from House St. onto Hebron Ave. and will serve as a temporary safety solution until the roundabout is constructed in the Spring of 2018. Implementation of this temporary traffic pattern is the responsibility of Continental Global Ventures, the Developer of the “One Glastonbury” Complex (formerly “the Mews”). With 145 apartment units, this complex is expected to have occupancy by year-end, and is subsequently projected to increase traffic flow at this intersection. The Hebron Ave/House St intersection experiences a significant number of vehicular accidents annually and the anticipated increase in traffic could exacerbate existing safety concerns if alternative traffic patterns aren’t promptly established. As such, the Developer will be installing these temporary medians, which will remain in place until the roundabout is constructed in the Spring of 2018. Median installation is expected to be completed by Friday, October 27, without causing any major disruption to traffic flow. The roundabout will ultimately serve as the long-term solution to mitigating safety issues at this busy intersection.
Vehicles traveling SOUTH on House Street and wishing to proceed EASTBOUND on Hebron Avenue will need to follow detour signage as outlined below. Traffic turning onto House St. from Hebron Ave. in either direction will remain permissible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience as we work to preserve the safety of our community.
