Red Deerians get access to roundabout

An update on 67th Street/Johnstone Drive roundabout

  • Oct. 27, 2016 3:55 p.m.

Starting this weekend, drivers will be able use the 67th Street/Johnstone Drive roundabout. The roundabout is not complete, but one lane will open in all directions. In addition, the single-lane roundabout at 66th St. and Orr Drive is fully open.

Weather permitting, work will continue until the end of this construction season and will resume next spring as needed to complete road construction on 67th St., as well as trails and landscaping.

Lane restrictions on 67th St. will also continue until construction is complete.

Drivers are reminded that the area is still an active construction site, and to obey all posted signage, including speed limits and temporary roundabout signage.

Drivers should follow these basic steps for navigating single lane roundabouts:

– Slow down. As you approach the roundabout, signal like you would at a regular intersection: signal left if you’re turning left, signal right if you’re turning right.

– Yield to pedestrians at the crosswalks.

– Look left and yield to traffic in the roundabout; only stop if necessary.

– Signal right as you approach your exit and yield to pedestrians.

Pedestrians are reminded to cross only at designated crosswalks and use caution when crossing at the roundabout, especially while construction is underway.
