Engineering and Design
The Developer of Lowes Home Improvements has completed construction on a roundabout at Gateway Blvd and Ocean Gate Plaza. The roundabout will improvement the intersection and decrease traffic congestion with the commercial development. The Town will use the design to connect and improve the intersection at New Pointe Blvd and Ocean Gate Plaza to install a single-lane teardrop roundabout that will fully complete the road improvements. Preliminary Design plans for the improvements are completed and the Town is working on permitting and right of way with construction anticipated in Spring/Summer 2024.
Preliminary Design Plans for the teardrop roundabout have been updated. Town Staff will be reaching out to the commercial property owners to begin the Right of Way phase for the project.
