Construction of Roundabout’s Second Half Begins Next Week
Two-Way Fairfield Ready for Traffic
(October 3, 2014) – The road construction of the first portion of the roundabout at Fairfield/Ewing/Superior and Wells is nearing completion and crews will begin the changeover from Fairfield to Ewing on Monday.
If the weather cooperates crews expect Fairfield’s conversion to two-way to be completed by Tuesday.
Ewing Street will close from Superior to Main for construction of the second half of the roundabout. Ewing will remain two-way from Main to Baker.
Here’s what else motorists should be aware of next week: (reference graphic attached)
- Traffic flow on the Wells Street Bridge will move to the west side of the bridge and the east side will be closed.
- Superior Street east of Ewing will be open to local businesses only, between Harrison and Ewing.
- A one-way stop will be placed on Superior, at Fairfield, for motorists heading east on Superior. These motorists will only be able to turn right/south onto Fairfield. There will be no left turn.
- Traffic heading north and south on Fairfield to/from Wells will be a continuous flow and will not stop at Superior.
Concrete construction of the roundabout is expected to be complete in late November with landscaping and restoration completed next year.
