Construction on a busy intersection is set to begin this month.
The 199th Street and Ridgeview Road intersection, just south of Spring Hill High School, will be closed for construction of a roundabout to alleviate busy traffic during school hours.
The intersection will be completely closed to traffic no earlier than May 27. The contractor, Linaweaver Construction Co., will have signage indicating the following detours:
- Trucks will be notified by signage that 199th Street is closed, and they should use 175th Street/179th Street from U.S. 169 to U.S. 69.
- Thru vehicles will detour by Woodland Road, 183rd Street and Renner Road.
- Access to the Spring Hill High School, Wolf Creek Elementary School, and subdivisions north of the 199th and Ridgeview intersection can use Woodland Road, 191st Street, and Ridgeview Road (north of the closed intersection).
Ridgeview Road is scheduled to reopen on or before Aug. 17, which will allow for only traffic on Ridgeview. 199th Street will still be closed.
199th Street is expected to reopen on or before Sept. 15 with an expected final completion on or before Oct. 15.
