Road Closings for Construction of Roundabout in Garner start Monday Friday, September 14, 2012

RALEIGH — Crews working on a $624,187 N.C. Department of Transportation project to convert the intersection of Vandora Springs and Buffaloe roads in Garner to a single-lane roundabout will close the intersection, starting Monday, Sept. 17. The intersection is expected to re-open by Nov. 16, with the project finishing five days later.

That intersection will be closed to all traffic except emergency vehicles during the project. A signed detour in place will use Old Stage Road, Woodland Drive and Timber Drive. To help traffic flow on the detour route, a permanent traffic signal has been installed at the intersection of Woodland Drive and Old Stage Road. There are message boards in the area alerting motorists that the closure begins next week.

The roundabout will have a single 18-foot lane and is being installed to alleviate traffic-safety problems at the intersection, especially turning movements. NCDOT and the Town of Garner worked together on the project planning, and the town is paying a share of the cost.

Drivers traveling in the area are asked to observe construction and detour signs and allow extra time for the detour route.
