The County will provide an overview of the project and review the various detour phases and their anticipated timing during the 2017-18 school year. Citizens will be able to ask questions and get answers about the project.
Construction will last more than a year and will involve multiple road closings and detours. Traffic detour impacts will begin in October. Detours will affect routes to schools and some school bus routes. Construction will not be completed until the Fall of 2018.
The project includes construction of a bridge over the railroad, closure of the existing rail crossing and Cool Spring Road connection to Atlee Station Road. Cool Spring Road will be connected to the new Atlee Road Extended. The project also includes a traffic signal at Atlee Station Road and the new Atlee Road extension. Sidewalks and accommodations for bicycles will also be constructed as part of this project.
Maps and additional information can be viewed here.
Variable message boards will be placed announcing the detours at least two weeks prior to any change in traffic patterns.
