FAYETTEVLLE – Roundabouts are coming to a pair of Rosehill Road intersections in Fayetteville.
The circular designs will be constructed at these T-intersections:
The N.C. Department of Transportation awarded a $2.7 million contract this week to JYMCO Construction Co. Inc. of Smithfield. A timeline for construction will be established later. The construction will require the temporary closure of these two intersections next summer when school is out.
The project was based on a review by NCDOT of crash patterns and traffic data.
The contractor will build what the department refers to as mini-roundabouts, which are smaller than the typical roundabout and fit within the existing right of way. These smaller designs have been shown to reduce injury and deadly crashes by 59%, according to a 2021 study by UNC-Charlotte conducted for NCDOT.
