Round­about at Bloom­field Cor­ner com­pleted

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

Traf­fic is flow­ing freely through the now-com­pleted Bloom­field Cor­ner round­about.

Work on the $1.5-mil­lion project started mid-May and was com­pleted last week with the re­moval of tem­po­rary ac­cess roads around the con­struc­tion site.

Hy­dro-seed­ing wrapped up on Mon­day.

A pub­lic park­ing lot along the Mill River East Road has also been re-es­tab­lished.

The round­about is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent than most of the oth­ers around the prov­ince in that it in­cor­po­rates ac­cess to a busi­ness lot right on the cor­ner. There is an open­ing in the split­ter is­land to the west of the round­about to al­low west­bound ve­hi­cles that have just ex­ited the round­about to turn left into the busi­ness lot.

Ve­hi­cles ex­it­ing the busi­ness lot and head­ing west, to­wards Elms­dale, can cross the open­ing and pro­ceed west with­out re-en­ter­ing the round­about. As well, there is a left-turn­ing lane into the busi­ness lot from the O’Hal­lo­ran Road, and ve­hi­cles can turn left into the round­about or right to­wards Camp­bell­ton when leav­ing the busi­ness lot via the O’Hal­lo­ran Road.

There is still some work on­go­ing to ex­pand the busi­ness lot, pri­mar­ily to al­low ac­cess for de­liv­ery trucks.
