Closures Planned for Roundabout at Highway 43 and Stockdale Highway

Final striping operations will be underway at the new State Route 43 (Enos Lane)/Stockdale Highway roundabout next week. The work will be performed during nighttime hours Monday, June 15 through Thursday, June 18, between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., each night.

A full closure of the intersection will be needed Monday and Tuesday nights. Motorists will need to use either Rosedale Highway or Panama Lane to travel to and from Interstate 5 while work is underway. State Route 43 will also be closed to through traffic between Rosedale Highway and Panama Lane. North-south motorists can detour around the work area via Interstate 5.

Striping operations on Wednesday and Thursday nights will require traffic control. Flagging personnel will need to stop traffic for up to 15 minutes at a time while work is underway.

These operations affect all directions of travel. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes or allow extra time to reach their destinations if they must travel through this intersection during this time period.

Please slow down and watch for construction workers and equipment while driving through the work zone. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
