Road Construction Projects
Bluff and Gentile Road Project
General Information - Road construction has begun at the Bluff Road and Gentile Street intersection. The construction area stretches along Gentile Street from the city border (~500 West) to the east border of Stillwater subdivision (~1000 West). It also extends along Bluff Street from Gentile Street to 1000 West. When the project is complete, there will be a roundabout at the Bluff and Gentile intersection.
This project will improve functionality, capacity, mobility, and safety for vehicles and pedestrians. The restricted left turns will be eliminated; traffic flows will improve having yield signs instead of stop signs at the Bluff and Gentile intersection; Free flow right turns from Gentile to Bluff will remain as a dedicated right turn lane; Vehicles traveling straight along Bluff Road at the 1000 West intersection will no longer have interrupted stops waiting behind those who are turning left; all pedestrians will be able to safely access the trail system; A pedestrian crossing will be added at 1000 West allowing safe access across Bluff Road to the trail system; Additional street lamps will be placed at intersections to improve nighttime visibility for vehicles and pedestrians; Trails will be added along Bluff and Gentile making connections at 1000 West, the new roundabout, and along Gentile at the east end of Stillwater subdivision; and Sidewalks east of the new roundabout will be added on both the north and south sides of Gentile Street. The intersection at 1000 West and Bluff will be reconfigured so the end of 1000 West will curve slightly making a perpendicular intersection on Bluff Road. This will improve visibility for vehicles and bring the intersection to current safety standards.
Traffic will be restricted throughout the construction period (March – November). Currently there is a road closure on Gentile between Still Water Subdivision and Bluff Road and other road closures are to be expected during a large portion of the project. Drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists must avoid these areas during construction. 2700 South will remain open for detours during this project. Individual properties immediately inside the project area will still have access but may be temporarily interrupted on occasion.

Crews continue to install the storm drain along Bluff Road and Gentile Street. The subgrade and base layers of the roads are being built for the new road. Concrete curbing is in the process of being installed. Concrete for the roundabout has also begun.
Please follow all construction signs and drive slow when traveling through this area. Road closures apply to all vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists in order to maintain safety for everyone.
Avoid driving through this area if possible. Using detour routes may prove to be a time saver.
PEDESTRIAN’S ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE WORK ZONE.
Traffic delays will occur on Bluff Road. Please watch for flaggers.

Trees provide shade and appeal, but require proper maintenance to remain healthy. In order to protect trees that extend over the sidewalks and roadways from being damaged by vehicles and pedestrians, trees must be pruned to allow a clearance of seven feet over a sidewalk and eleven feet over a street.
