Stage I of a long-planned project to update the Windsor River Road/Windsor Road intersection to a roundabout will start Monday, August 23, and last about two months, through October. Stage I requires the closure of Windsor Road from Windsor River Road to the south entrance of Marshall Way to vehicle traffic. Pedestrian access for residents and businesses will remain open throughout construction.
All construction will take place 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM, Monday-Friday, exclusive of holidays. Please note that these are proposed construction detours and may be amended as construction plans change:
• No northbound or southbound traffic on Windsor Road between Marshall Way and Windsor River Road from August 23 through October.
• Northbound traffic is detoured east on Windsor River Road to Market Street to Old Redwood Highway and then to Joe Rodota Drive.
• Southbound traffic is detoured to Joe Rodota Drive to Old Redwood Highway and then to Market Street.
Drive with caution and allow extra time. For more information and to see a map of the proposed detours, please go to our newly launched webpage for this project: https://bit.ly/WRRroundabout.
Improving traffic flow and safety
The roundabout construction along this critical east-west corridor is required to accommodate the SMART train as well as improve traffic and safety for all travelers -- not just motorists, but also pedestrians and cyclists. For example, the roundabout will help lower vehicle speed at this intersection. Pedestrian crossing safety improvements include new sidewalks, realigned crosswalks, ADA curb ramps, and refuge medians.
During this significant construction, there will be some unavoidable noise, dust, traffic delays, and changes in the traffic patterns and on-street parking, so we will provide regular updates to help minimize the impact to you. The entire roundabout project will take about one year to complete.
