After barely over a year, traffic will no longer have to wait on trains!
Working through a miserable winter and dealing with unexpected problems like poor soil, buried gas mains, and rainy weather, the contractors involved in the Rollins Road Gateway construction project opened it up to traffic for the first time on September 25th around 11:30 AM. There is still a lot of work to be completed including Route 83 merge lanes. Until they are completed there is no access from Rollins Road to Route 83 and vice versa. Detours will be in effect for the next six to eight weeks.
The following video is about three hours condensed down to fifteen minutes to show you the final hour before traffic was allowed to pass UNDER the new railroad bridge as well as the temporary Rote 83 bridge.
