11-30-17 A Productive Season



It has been a productive construction season for New Franklin Boulevard!  Starting in April of this year, crews worked steadily to build sidewalks, curbs, stormwater planters, bicycle facilities, and travel lanes for both the north and south portions of the roundabout. Construction will be minimal over the holiday season, starting again on January 8.
Check out the evolution of the roundabout from two aerial photographs taken a few months apart (click images to enlarge):
