Traffic Roundabout Construction
Sweeney-Nealy-Hammond Intersection

Langley is preparing for significant mission expansion of their flying and intelligence support missions. By 2025, recent traffic studies show the traffic density at the Sweeney-Nealy-Hammond intersection is expected to nearly double during the peak AM and PM commute. Construction of a traffic roundabout began June 13, 2022. This construction project will result in continuous traffic flow and prevent stop-go traffic along the Sweeney Avenue corridor as compared to the current traffic light control at the intersection.

How Do Roundabouts Work?

GIVE WAY TO THE PERSON WHO IS ALREADY ON THE ROUNDABOUT.

The first and most important rule of a Roundabout is that you give way to the vehicles that are already occupying it.

Phase 2 of Roundabout Construction has commenced on the northern half of the roundabout.
