Route 32 traffic patterns change

November 02, 2008

The State Highway Administration has opened three roundabouts and two new ramps and removed two traffic signals along Route 32.

Traffic signals have been removed along Route 32 at Pfefferkorn and Ten Oaks roads. Motorists traveling along Route 32 can now use the ramps and roundabouts to access Burntwoods, Pfefferkorn and Ten Oaks roads. A new Burntwoods Road bridge over Route 32 is also open to traffic.

Motorists are urged to reduce speed and stay alert; variable message boards, barrels and arrow boards will guide them through the new traffic pattern.

The $27 million project is expected to be completed in the spring.
