For years, drivers have had to contend with traffic converging at the Six Corners intersection in Springfield.
But there’s relief on the way. Construction of a traffic rotary also called a roundabout, is expected to solve the traffic congestion problem.
Springfield’s Public Works director Christopher Cignoli told 22News how the roundabout will improve driving conditions
“It’s a very, very controlled environment to move traffic without having to sit at traffic lights,” Cignoli explained. Adding, “even when you have a green light, you can fly through the intersection at 40 mph.”
With the state paying for construction of the rotary, work will begin at the end of summer will hopefully be completed around early fall in 2019.
