Poughkeepsie’s New Traffic Circle Opens
Construction surrounding the intersections of Salt Point Turnpike and Creek Road continues but with silver lining. Most of the roads are nearly complete and the traffic circle itself is complete!
Drivers now have access to using it and congestion is already seeing a steady decline. It was nice traveling back into the City Of Poughkeepsie without having to wait at a stop sign. Instead, I easily merged into the circle and made my round about way home.
Road work is still ongoing but the stress of waiting is starting to fade. Please be mindful of construction workers as their job is dangerous enough without motorist driving carelessly.
The approach is pretty self explanatory just drive slower through the area as there are still some spots where there is no shoulder. Follow the cones and note the new road signs directing traffic.
