  • Westbound Frontage Road traffic will enter the roundabout and take the second exit to continue west on the Frontage Road
  • Eastbound Frontage Road traffic will enter the roundabout and take the first exit to access Sevier Street or the South Street bridge
  • South Street bridge traffic will enter the roundabout and take the first exit to travel west on the Frontage Road

  • South Street bridge to Sevier Street

Traffic will be controlled with construction barrels barricades, and signage.
