For a while now, road construction crews have been working on a major project at the intersection of Rue Du Belier and Dulles Drive near the Apollo Road extension.

That interchange will soon be closed as the roundabout there will be constructed over the next several months.

According to Scott Mayor Jan-Scott Richard, this project is expected to take eight months, weather permitting, and the completion date is projected for April 16, 2023.

To help with detouring during this time period, two new traffic lights have been installed at nearby intersections in an effort to help with traffic flow. Those new lights have been installed at Dulles Drive and Le Violon Road along with West Congress Street and Le Violon Road.

The City of Scott put together a very informative video to help motorists navigate the area during construction. You can find that video here.

And below is a map of the Apollo Road Roundabout construction project and the suggested detour route.
