Signs indicating the street names are up, but upcoming stop light instruments remain covered while work continues on the intersection of Roselle Avenue and Claribel Road south of the Riverbank city limits.
Regular travelers through that junction will have noticed that the project’s electronic caution signs indicate, at this time, that the work that was expected to be finished by May 15, obviously hasn’t yet been completed.
The original start date of the project was listed as Oct. 2, 2018, but numerous rain delays have impacted the planned schedule. The project was originally supposed to be completed by Feb. 28 but the higher than normal rainfall over the winter months often forced crews to stop work.
Though obviously delayed, progress is now evident there, with street signs installed on the stoplight booms, and extensive guide lines marking the pavement where new alignments for the lanes are now awaiting the final paint.
The new lane configurations will impact where cars stop for the lights, with crosswalks clearly indicated on all four sides of the intersection.
Some turn lanes have been added to the mix, as indicated where stoplights are installed and the guide lines have appeared. The stoplights remain covered, but indications show that traffic cameras may have been installed on them as well. The intersection remains a signed four-way stop while the work continues on getting the stop lights operational.
