Temporary pinch next week at roundabout: motorists will be unable to go full circle

By The City of Healdsburg

Partial closure necessary during installation of sewer pipe

The replacement of a 36-inch diameter sewer pipe in Healdsburg Avenue is underway. Beginning Wednesday, April 5, there will be a temporary reconfiguration and closure on the south side of the interim roundabout to accommodate underground work.

This reconfiguration may be delayed due to recent rains, but once reconfiguration is in place it will last approximately one week.

The impact on vehicle traffic will be that it will not be possible to cross Healdsburg Avenue south of the interim roundabout. In order to access Mill Street east of the Avenue, vehicles will not be able to make a full circle and will have to detour.

With the exception of the temporary south side closure and reconfiguration, the interim roundabout will allow for traffic to access all businesses south of The Parish Café located on the west side of Healdsburg Avenue. The city has placed additional signage to make sure routes to businesses remain open and that entrances are clear to drivers.
