Golden Hill and Union Detour

Public Works is preparing to begin construction on the roundabout at Union Road and Golden Hill Road. Construction is projected to start December 2021 and run through August 2022. 

The intersection at Golden Hill and Union Road will be closed during construction. 

Ardmore Road will be realigned to create a detour that will allow motorists to access Golden Hill on either side of the closure.

The City requests that residents respect the Ardmore neighborhood and to please use alternate routes such as Hwy 46 as often as possible when coming into town - County residents coming to town should go west on Union then turn right at Golden Hill then left at the traffic signal at Hwy 46.

All businesses in the vicinity will remain open and accessible during construction.

The Good News

There is good news. When the roundabout project is complete, traffic flow will be considerably improved. Click the image below to see a video simulation of traffic flow when the roundabout is done.

The complete video is 7 minutes long and shows traffic flow from all points of entry into the roundabout, plus pedestrian and bike path flow. 

The traffic volume shown in the video illustrates future traffic volumes when Chandler/Beechwood specific plans are fully developed. Therefore the useful life of the roundabout would last beyond 2032.

Alternate routes

Golden Hill Road will be accessible to most residents on both sides of the construction closure via a detour on Ardmore Road, which will be realigned before the closure begins. 

Trucks and larger vehicles should use the truck route.
