The intersection at Redmond Ridge Dr NE and NE Alder Crest Dr is open. Crews will continue to finalize the roundabout focusing on landscaping and irrigation.
The weather continues to be a barrier for final paving, and we now plan for this work to occur in early spring. We will notify the community when a weather window opens for paving work. Crews have added temporary lane and crosswalk marking that will be in place until final paving can be scheduled.
We thank the Redmond Ridge community for your continued patience.
