Traffic Advisory

ROAD CLOSURE

Beginning the Week of February 5th:  Laurel Drive will be closed at the Intersection of Lawnfield Drive for approximately 4 weeks.  The closure is related to repairs being performed on a 72” culvert under Laurel Drive at the intersection.    Residents located between Gettysburg and Lawnfield Drive will exit/enter from Gettysburg and this section of the road will be local traffic only.    


The State Route 91/Glenwood roundabout is now fully open.  

Here are a few key things to remember about driving roundabouts:

-Slow down 
Roundabout ahead, 15 MPH

-Choose a lane 
Right lane if turning right, left lane if turning left.

-Yield to drivers in the roundabout
Look left for traffic already in the roundabout.  That means you may need to stop prior to entering the roundabout!!

-Stay in your lane; do not change lanes
Pick a lane prior to entering the roundabout.  Right lane if turning right, left lane if turning left. 

-Do not stop in the roundabout
The car in the roundabout has the right of way.  That means once you have yielded and successfully entered the roundabout you have the right of way to go around.

-Avoid driving next to oversized vehicles
The roundabout is designed for oversized vehicles however, it is best to give them room and not enter with a semi-truck or ride next to it.

-Proceed to your exit
Turn signals should be used. A Right turn signal lets the driver approaching the roundabout know you are exiting, which allows them to enter.
