Topsail Road / McNamara Drive Roundabout

Project Update: Work concludes for 2018 Construction Season

Work for this year on the Topsail Road / McNamara Drive Roundabout is scheduled to conclude in the coming weeks. This project involves upgrading the sewer system on McNamara Drive, installing a roundabout at the intersection, and upgrades to Clearview Heights. 

Throughout the fall, work focused on upgrades to the sewer system on McNamara Drive and completing preparatory work for converting the Topsail Road / McNamara Drive intersection into a roundabout. As the sewer work progressed, the project schedule was adapted to complete more of that portion of the work this year. For the roundabout, the retaining wall was installed next to the ALRE property, the curb and gutter were placed and other necessary infrastructure work was completed in the intersection. 

The Topsail Road / McNamara Drive intersection will remain a signalized intersection throughout the winter. Next spring, when the construction season resumes, the roundabout and road upgrades to Clearview Heights will be completed. The Town will provide an update on the start date for the 2019 construction season in the spring.
