Sheldon & Bradshaw – Bridge/Intersection Project

March 9th, 2016 City Council Decisions

At the 3/9/2016 City Council meeting, the Council selected the roundabout as the preferred alternative to be advanced to final design.  Council also approved a 6-week full closure of the intersection during construction.  This closure will occur in the summer months when most schools are not in session.

Project Overview

Improvements to the intersection of Sheldon Road and Bradshaw Road are planned to 1) replace the existing bridge under the intersection which currently overtops in the 100 year flood event and 2) threshold values for increased traffic have been met, per the process outlined in the Rural Road Improvement Policy and Standards.
