MEDIA ADVISORY

The new intersection of West Valley Road and Confederation Drive will open to traffic at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday June 3*, 2021.

At this time the adjacent 3-Way stop will close. Motorists are advised to follow the direction of flag people and to proceed with caution as this remains an active construction site.

When the intersection opens it will be a single-lane roundabout.

Vehicles, ATVs and bicycle riders entering the roundabout must first yield to pedestrians and then to vehicles, ATVs and bicycle riders already in the roundabout.  Vehicles in the roundabout always have the right of way. Vehicles must also yield to pedestrians when exiting the roundabout.
