Traffic delays could effect your travels in the Queensgate area this week as summer construction begins.

Two new roundabouts will help with congestion at Queensgate.

One roundabout will be at the Queensgate-Columbia Park Trail intersection, and the other at Queensgate and the eastbound I-182 ramps, just south of the bridge over the interstate.

During the construction process, drivers can expect lane closures and detours while the four-month project is completed.

The largest impact will be for those looking to enter the Queensgate shopping center from Keene, since traffic will be prevented from going completely north on Queensgate.

Vehicles will be detoured further west from Keene to Duportail Road near the Maverik gas station. Freeway ramps will remain open, but drivers should still expect frequent lane closures and slowdowns during daytime hours. There may be nighttime work that closes the corridor completely at times between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Drivers who typically use these intersections and access points should expect delays throughout the spring and early summer as work is completed.

You can expect delays but the good news, the construction could be completed by July and once completed, traffic should flow much better in the Queensgate area.
