O’FALLON – Mayor Gary L. Graham is pleased to announce the construction for a roundabout at the intersection of Milburn School Road, Simmons Road and Fairwood Hills Road is scheduled to begin Monday, April 4, 2016. It is not anticipated that this initial work will require any road closures, although delays could be encountered. Full closure of the intersection is scheduled for Tuesday May 24, 2016.

“We kindly ask our residents to be patient and considerate during this needed improvement project,” said Mayor Gary L. Graham. “Once completed, this project will vastly relieve traffic congestion at this important O’Fallon intersection.”

The intersection is scheduled to be re-opened no later than August 5, 2016, with finishing work occurring until August 31, 2016, when the project is scheduled for final completion.

A detour route for the full closure will be on Lincoln Avenue, State Street, Highway 50, Venita Drive, Frontage Road, and Old Collinsville Road.

The work will consist of storm sewer, curb and sidewalk installation and pavement construction, converting the existing intersection into a modern roundabout similar to the City’s other roundabouts.
