MONROE– Beginning Monday, June 3, N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews will start building a roundabout at the intersection of Rocky River Road and N.C. 75. The $1.1 million project is expected to be completed in mid-July.
Crews will first close Rocky River Road and Old Waxhaw-Monroe Road to traffic. Drivers heading north on Rocky River Road will follow a signed detour along Doster Road, Corinth Church Road, Fletcher Broome Road and New Town Road, returning to Rocky River Road. Southbound drivers will follow this detour in reverse.
Motorists on Old Waxhaw-Monroe Road will also be detoured to Doster Road, Corinth Church Road and Fletcher Broome Road, back to N.C. 75. Both detours will be in place up to four weeks.
In mid-June, N.C. 75 will close for approximately two weeks to continue construction. Eastbound traffic will be detoured from N.C. 75 to Potter Road and New Town Road. Westbound drivers will follow this detour in reverse.
NCDOT has produced a
video showing how roundabouts work and improve overall safety.
