Hamlett’s construction crews have started work on the island for the Hillsborough/Pullen roundabout.  During the construction, the intersection will be operating as a large single-lane roundabout.

We know many of you are unfamilar with roundabouts, so here are a few pointers as you get used to the new intersection:

  • Slow down as you approach and travel through the roundabout.
  • Yield to traffic already in the roundabout.  That means you may have to stop and wait for a gap in traffic before entering the roundabout. 
  • Give large vehicles extra space as they maneuver through the intersection.
  • Signal your exit so those behind you and at upcoming entrances know when you are exiting.

We appreciate your patience throughout the construction process.  Feel free to contact us at any of the following outlets with any questions or concerns.
