Nelson Road to be closed at Rutherford

Intersection upgrade continues through summer


Starting Monday July 10, Nelson Road will be closed at Rutherford Road to allow construction to continue on the new roundabout intersection and connector road into Linley Valley West.

During the work two way traffic along Rutherford Road will be maintained when possible. Traffic patterns will change again in early August as vehicles are moved over to the east side, through the new roundabout lanes, to allow crews to construct the west side of the roundabout.

Access for local residents along Nelson will be unaffected and available from Turner Road, with all businesses in the area open regular working hours.

Strategic Link: This project supports the City's commitment to Transportation Mobility.

Key Points

  • There will be no through access at Nelson and Rutherford roads between July 10 and August 31.
  • Construction timing coincides with summer break for Randerson Ridge Elementary students, parents, and staff.


"Motorists passing through the site should continue to obey the flaggers and be aware of speed zone and warning signs, especially as traffic patterns shift to the new curved roundabout lanes. We thank motorists for their continued patience and understanding."
