MILESTONES:

  • Project’s Substantial Completion Date is September 8, 2017.  Project is currently ahead of schedule.
  • Motorists are reminded to yield to traffic already in the circle as they approach each roundabout and follow signage.  Additionally, motorists wishing to head east (to areas such as Post Road Extension or West Shore Road) from the Centerville Road / Toll Gate Road area (by traveling on the new Veterans Memorial Drive Extension) should remain in the lanes that head straight rather than bearing right toward Greenwich Ave. 
  • A new traffic pattern has been established at Apponaug Four Corners (Post Road at Centerville Road and Greenwich Avenue).  Motorists are now required to navigate through the area around traffic barrels, as a phase in the roundabout development.  Please stay to the right of the barrels.
