“We kindly ask that our residents be patient and considerate during this improvement project,” said Mayor Herb Roach. “Once completed, this intersection will be safer and have less traffic congestion.”

A marked detour route will be on Fairway Wood, Tea Olive, Savannah Hills Boulevard, Northshore Drive, and Dunhill Drive.

The work will consist of storm sewer and curb installation, construction of a roundabout and new pavement. The work will be completed by Hanks Excavating and Landscaping.
