The newly constructed roundabout at the intersection of Kenosha County Highway Y (22nd Avenue) and Highway A (Seventh Street) reopened to traffic today.
This intersection had been closed since March, when work began on converting what was a 4-way stop into a single-lane roundabout. Work is now substantially complete, although temporary lighting will be in place until permanent equipment becomes available from the manufacturer.
Periodic full or partial closures of the intersection will be needed in the coming weeks to accommodate utility work and installation of the permanent lighting. The public will be notified in advance of these closures, which may necessitate use of the original detour routes.
Kenosha County thanks the public for its patience and cooperation throughout the project.
A project update that includes a map of the work area is available here.
