Crews will be mobilizing to begin the transformation of the intersection of 19th and Pleasant streets to a roundabout on Monday, Sept. 17.
Utility relocation was previously completed and construction signs are installed in the work zone. The public should be aware that construction activity will occur while the intersection is open to traffic. During phase three, a 21-day closure of 19th Street adjacent to the intersection is planned for the beginning of October. During this period, entrance to post office will come through a temporary access off Pleasant Street.
Approximately 15,000 vehicles travel through the intersection daily. The existing three-leg intersection with 19th Street under stop control will be converted to a single lane roundabout – providing vehicles with safer and more efficient travel at that location. Lighting and sidewalks also will be installed.
