ROSEBURG, OR. -- People in Roseburg will be dealing with road construction and traffic delays for at least the next four months.

The intersection of Stewart Parkway and Edenbower Blvd. will be getting a double left turn lane from Eastbound Stewart Parkway to Northbound Edenbower to ease traffic congestion in that area.

Phase two of the downtown core project is currently underway in an effort to beautify two more intersections downtown.

An area of Garden Valley between I-5 and Stephens St. will be paved starting June first.

Black Avenue in Roseburg will be widened and have sidewalks added to it, making it easier for pedestrians to walk down to the Garden Valley Shopping Center.

Officials said utilities will also be buried underground.

Residents said they’re happy to see this finally happening.

“They be a little bit more professional. The road is – you know, there’s a lot of traffic in here,” said resident Cecilia Duncan. “People from Rosehaven, people from the mall, and I think they need to be in a little better condition, the road and stuff like that. Because they do, they have a few wrecks here on the corner.”

The downtown core project is scheduled to be completed in October.

The other three projects should take about four months to complete.
