DETOURS: No date set for roundabout work

There is a great deal of interest in the roundabout involving Stargazer, Strasburg, Romansville and Shadyside Roads that's proposed as part of the "Stargazer Village" development, as the detours during construction will affect a great many people.
Construction on the roundabout was supposed to start Aug. 15, but the state Department of Transportation realized that its detours weren't going to work due to the weight restrictions on some of the roads.
Here is the latest from West Bradford Township's website:
  1. Developer continues to work with PennDOT to revise the detour plans to minimize impact on the community and traveling public.
  2. At this point, PennDOT has not approved a revised detour route, so a date for closure has not yet been established.
  3. Sewer main extension on Romansville Road will be coordinated with the road closures for the roundabout.  Residents who are to receive laterals will be sent letters via USPS mail once a date certain for construction is set.  At that point, placement of the green flags for lateral location will be required.
**PennDOT requires that construction closures on State roadways are posted a minimum of TWO weeks in advance of the closure.  Be alert for signage announcing proposed closure dates in the near future.
Please keep in mind that all of this is subject to changes and/or updates as PennDOT works through the detour planning.  As we receive updates, we will share them."
