After months of construction and delays, the new roundabout at Bass and Hadley is now open.
It’s been closed since July and many residents and employees have been frustrated by the construction delays. The intersection was scheduled to open back in December but was pushed back until the end of March.
The Allen County Public Information Office blamed the delays on weather and other “unforeseen circumstances”. The release went on to indicate that the Allen County Highway Department has been working with the Department of Transportation and CSX Railroad officals to make sure the roundabout meets all safety requirements.
Officials said now that the stretch of Bass Road between Hadley and Thomas is open, it’s not expected to be closed again until the next phase of the project begins sometime after 2019.
