Summary of work

Construction of a roundabout at Hwy 19 and Rice Co. Rd. 2 is scheduled for 2025 north of Lonsdale to improve intersection safety and traffic mobility.

Benefits of a roundabout

  • Significantly reduce the risk of serious and fatal crashes
  • Allows motorists to get through the intersection more safely and in less time
  • Handle more traffic with less delay than most stop signs or traffic signals
  • Slow traffic down to make entering and exiting the area easier for all users

Traffic impacts

Detours will occur during construction. Details will be shared once traffic staging is further developed.
