Twinsburg -- A 15-day closure at the intersection of Glenwood Drive and Route 91 for east- and westbound traffic is scheduled to occur beginning the week of Aug. 22, according to city officials.

The flow of north- and southbound traffic on Route 91 will be maintained, according to city officials.

When the full intersection reopens, it will operate as a full roundabout, without the finishing asphalt surfacing (one inch of asphalt set to be installed on Route 91 from Post Road through Glenwood Drive, after completion of the widening occurring on the west side of the road).

"The city of Twinsburg is dedicated to improving and maintaining our infrastructure without interrupting the lives of our residents," said Mayor Ted Yates. "We hope that by using a traffic circle, we will be able to maintain a regular flow of traffic and finish this construction project on schedule."

Residents are reminded to watch the electronic message boards on Route 91 for updates on the start date of the east- and westbound closure.

To use the multi-lane Glenwood Drive / Darrow Road roundabout, motorists should choose a lane the way they would for a traditional multi-lane intersection. Advanced signage around the intersection will indicate which lane drivers should choose.

For those traveling east on Glenwood, get in the right lane to go right, and get in the left lane to go straight or left. Only the left lane can go around the roundabout; the right lane is for immediate right turns only.

For those traveling west on Glenwood, there will only be one lane for straight, right or left turns. There will be no lane use signage on this spoke of the intersection since the one lane can be used to make any traffic movement desired.

For those traveling south on Route 91, get in the right lane to go straight or right, and get in the left lane to go straight, left or go around.

For those traveling north on Route 91, get in the right lane to go straight or right. Get in the left lane to go straight, left or go around. Since the widening of Route 91 north of Glenwood Drive is not yet complete yet, traffic there will need to merge into one lane north of the roundabout.
