For Immediate Release

Construction begins March 24 on roundabout at Walnut Lawn and Maryland

Public Works has authorized Hartman & Company to begin construction on the Walnut Lawn Roundabout project at the intersection of Walnut Lawn Street and Maryland Avenue on Monday, March 24. The project includes the reconstruction of the intersection, from a two-way-stop-controlled intersection to a roundabout, for the purpose of traffic flow, stormwater improvements and a bicycle connection for The Link.

The project will involve multiple lane shifts and closures at various times. Detours will be posted on signs, but drivers are asked to use caution when driving through the construction project, and use alternate roadways when possible. The project is scheduled to be complete by June.

For more information, please contact Eric Claussen at 864-1165.
