CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - Charlottetown is getting another roundabout in 2019.
The province plans to spend $1.5 million on a two-lane roundabout at the intersection of St. Peters Road, Northridge Parkway and Norwood Road.
Coun. Terry Bernard, who represents the area, said this will help with traffic flow, noting it has been difficult for years for motorists trying to turn left at Northridge Parkway onto St. Peters Road.
The province recently held a public information session on the proposed project.
“It’s been a problem intersection for a lot of years,’’ Bernard said.
Work is expected to begin in May and the project is being cost-shared with the federal government.
Steve Yeo, the province’s chief engineer, told The Guardian that in 2020 the bypass, where it intersects with St. Peters Road, will be widened to provide for additional turning lanes.
