 Project updates

Construction was completed in the summer of 2022 and the project is now in the warranty phase. The project team will monitor the new infrastructure for any possible defects. Landscaping efforts have started with some of the trees in the planting strips. Artwork is expected to be installed in early 2023, with the reamining landscaping in the center of the roundabout following shortly behind.

"Tapestry" by Douwe Blumberg​​​​This project targets a five-legged intersection controlled by a traffic signal with excessive wait times. The project is located at the five-legged intersection where Tuckaseegee and Berryhill each have two legs, and Thrift has one leg. The project will replace the signalized intersection with a roundabout. Additional project components include crosswalks, sidewalks, planting strips, landscaping and utility relocation.
