Construction contractors plan to remove traffic signals and shift lanes on 116th Street under U.S. 31 to a near-final roundabout configuration this afternoon.
Following this traffic shift, motorists exiting northbound and southbound U.S. 31 will yield to traffic on 116th Street. The roundabout will temporarily remain one lane in each direction to provide workers safe space to finish work.
Once traffic is shifted, crews will be able to complete concrete work at the interchange, including curbs and sidewalks. Orange barrels will remain in place at this interchange while crews complete this work.
Contractors continue monitoring weather forecasts to schedule a similar traffic shift at the U.S. 31 and 106th Street interchange. This shift will require several consecutive days of favorable weather conditions and motorists should expect some temporary traffic impacts.
