The existing four way stop intersection of Settingdown Road and Martin Road will be temporarily shifted to accommodate a future roundabout intersection construction. Construction affecting the through traffic movements on Settingdown Road and Martin Road will begin Sunday, Nov. 18, to realign both roads to a temporary four way stop intersection.

Due to this temporary relocation of the four way stop intersection, Settingdown Road and Martin Road will be intermittently closed to facilitate the temporary intersection. During the intermittent closure, traffic will be routed onto a temporary gravel surface. After Nov. 25, the temporary four way stop intersection will be in place until such time that the construction of the proposed roundabout is sufficient to open to traffic.   

Signage will be placed on Settingdown Road and Martin Road during the Nov. 18 to Nov. 25 time frame to alert the public of the traffic pattern change. The road is expected to re-open to the new traffic pattern change on Monday, Nov. 26, weather permitting.
