Q. Are there plans to close River Road and Sanders Road to construct the planned traffic circle? Also, what will the duration be of the construction of the River Road and Sanders Road circle? What plans for detour roots are being proposed?

A. There are plans to temporarily close the intersection of River Road and Saunders Road during the construction of the River Road roundabout, according to David B. Leonard, N.C. Department of Transportation Division 3 design engineer.

The original plans called for the road closure is to take place between June 10 and Aug. 28 of this year “and to last no more than 30 consecutive calendar days in order to not impact school traffic,” Leonard said.

A delay in getting a utility relocated altered the project schedule.

“We will have to coordinate a revised schedule with the school once we have a definite date on when the utility will be relocated,” Leonard said.

The availability date of the contract in place was April 28, 2016, with a projected completion date of Nov. 16.

“This is now subject to change due to the utility conflict,” Leonard said.

The proposed detour route is River Road to Cathay Road to U.S. 421, he added.
