Mathews Drive - Marshland Road Roundabout

The purpose of the project is to increase safety, circulation, and the aesthetic character of the area. The scope of the project includes creating a single lane roundabout at Mathews Drive and Marshland Road, with a dedicated right turn lane from Marshland Road to Mathews Drive. This is the last phase of the Mathews Drive corridor improvement plans. The Mathews Drive South roadway and pathway improvements were completed in 2008, the Mathews Drive North pathway and roundabout at Mathews Drive and Beach City Road were completed in 2011, and the Town owned Mathews Drive Side Streets rehabilitation project was completed in 2014.

Pavement resurfacing operations on Indigo Run Drive from William Hilton Parkway (US 278 Bus.) to the roundabout at Leg O’ Mutton Road and Pembroke Drive are scheduled from April 28th through May 9th. The paving resurfacing operations will intermittently close portions of Indigo Run Drive and the roundabout at Leg O’ Mutton Road and Pembroke Drive during the daytime hours from 7 am to 7 pm.  Traffic will be controlled through the work zone via flaggers, signs, message boards, and other traffic control devices.
