Construction starting on new Crossgates roundabout

Construction was starting Monday on a new roundabout at Crossgates Mall that could help ease traffic in the area.

The roundabout will be placed to give access to and from the Northway as part of CDTA’s Purple Line Project.

There will also be traffic signal upgrades on Crossgates Mall Road, repaving, restriping and updated landscaping.

CDTA says these improvements will help with the flow of buses in and around the mall, and future developments in the area.

Construction is expected to last through July.
