Subject: Road Closure
Work continues on Middle Bellville Road. Beginning Monday, June 4, Underground Utilities Inc. will begin work on the Straub Road Roundabout. The intersection of Straub Road and Middle Bellville Road will be closed to all traffic for 30 days. Motorists are directed to use the posted detour on Hanley Road, Lexington Avenue and South Main Street. Work will also continue on the section between Straub Road and Lexington Avenue.
Middle Bellville Road remains closed to through traffic. Access to local businesses and residences within the corridor will be maintained. Motorists are asked to observe all detour signs and warning signs throughout the project. Workers and equipment are frequently entering and exiting the roadway.
Work on the Logan Road intersection is planned for later this summer, while school is not in session.
Roundabouts have been proven to substantially reduce the severity of crashes, when compared to traditional signalized intersections. Anyone interested in learning more about this subject is invited to visit http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/intersection/roundabouts/.
