Province planning to build new roundabout in Fredericton this summer

The province is set to build a new $3 million roundabout in Fredericton this summer. 

The Daily Gleaner reports that an update on the project was provided by Brian Sorensen, the assistant director of highway design in the Department of Transportation, at Fredericton's transportation committee on Tuesday. 

The work is planned to start on the two-lane roundabout at the intersection of Ring Road and Two Nations Crossing once the project is tendered. 

Sorensen tells The Daily Gleaner that the project, which will be designed to manage peak traffic for the next twenty years, should be completed before the winter.

He adds that the province is also designing a new roundabout for the intersection of Ring Road and Brookside Drive and one for the north end of the Princess Margaret Bridge with the construction for these projects dependent on funding in future years.
