You may have noticed some preliminary work has commenced on the construction project. The Northfield School District in in the process of moving the house and foundation located in the northwest corner of the intersection. Also, small utility crews have been on-site working on relocation's in and around the project area and adjacent neighborhoods to ensure these facilities are free and clear of the roundabout installation.. These relocation's, which are occurring in the boulevards, ditches, and around the perimeter of the project are not anticipated to affect traffic flow in the intersection at this time. Motorists can expect short-term closures of the shoulders and turn lanes in the coming weeks as these small utility relocation's take place. Staff mailed a Construction Newsletter late this week to the neighborhoods adjacent to the project with additional information regarding the small utility relocation's. This newsletter is also posted on the project website listed below.
Staff has a "Preconstruction Conference" scheduled with the Contractor and other Project Representatives later next week. The purpose of this meeting will be to discuss the project schedule and phasing. Staff will send out a more detailed schedule to the adjacent neighborhoods, and post this information on the Project Website as well.
