Intersection Roundabout at SW Butler Rd. and SW 150th

WAMPO Federal Aid STP Roadway Reconstruction - SW Butler Rd. from 0.5 mile South to 0.5 mile North of SW 150th St.

Be advised that beginning Monday, May 4th, 2020, the major road improvement and roundabout project on SW Butler Rd at SW 150th St located north of Rose Hill will begin construction.  The entire roadway and intersection will be closed to all through traffic beginning that week. 

No Traffic will be able to go through the intersection of SW Butler Rd. and SW 150th St from any direction once the roadway is closed.  2 detour routes will be marked for traffic to use.  Please see the attached detour route information and construction phasing plan for additional information.

The entire project will be under construction for up to 10 months weather permitting.  The project is tentatively planned to be built in 2 phases.  During Phase 1, the roundabout will be constructed and all the roadway improvements on SW 150th St. will be completed.  At the end of phase 1, SW 150th St will be reopened to all east and west traffic only.  During Phase 2, construction of roadway improvements on SW Butler Rd will be completed.  The intersection will still be closed to all traffic on SW Butler Rd. and most local traffic access from SW Butler Rd will be limited or restricted.  At the end of Phase 2, the entire project including the new roundabout will be opened to traffic.  Project detour map and phasingSienna Ranch/Paul's Valley Access map and phasing.

9-16-20 Roundabout UPDATE:  The contractor for the SW Butler Rd/SW 150th St roundabout project has tentatively scheduled to open SW 150th St through the new roundabout at SW Butler Rd of east and west traffic only during the day on Tuesday, September 22nd.  This date could change due to unforeseen circumstances.  Once SW 150th St. is opened to traffic, SW Butler Rd will be completely closed and shut down to all traffic from 1/2 mile south of SW 150th St to 1/2 mile north of SW 150th St. for the duration of the project.  Residents in Sienna Ranch and in Paul's Valley Third Addition will only have access via SW 150th St.  All local traffic to and from Rose Hill and Andover are encouraged to use the SW Prairie Creek Rd detour route which is 1 mile east of SW Butler Rd.
