The construction of Watertown’s first round-about is nearing the final stages, and will require temporary closure of the intersection of 14th Avenue North and 11th Street East. The scheduled road closure will begin on Monday, May 4 with reopening expected by July 15, 2015. Through traffic is advised to use detours on US Highway 81 and 1st Avenue North during the closure period. Detour signs will be posted along the routes. No driveways will be closed, but drivers may have to use alternate routes to reach destinations. As in any construction project, pedestrians and motorists are asked to please exercise caution and patience, and to obey all traffic control devices. See attached map of detour route.
