The Riverside Drive bypass was slated to open earlier this week.

The city expects the state Route 161-Riverside Drive roundabout project to be significantly completed this week, including reopening the bypass and the Tuller Road and Riverside intersection, said Lindsay Weisenauer, senior public information officer.

That intersection had been closed for a couple of months and when it reopens will continue to be in a right turn-only configuration, Weisenauer said. The bypass had been closed since mid-August.

Officials had previously said the bypass would help improve roundabout operations.

The roundabout at state Route 161 and Riverside Drive has been the source of both positive and negative feedback.

Since Oct. 7, 36 crash reports at the site have been filed.
