Robinwood Drive road-improvement project confuses some drivers

August 04, 2013

A Washington County Sheriff’s deputy helped direct traffic on Robinwood Drive, near Medical Campus Road, on Sunday morning after some drivers were confused by a road-improvement project and drove the wrong way on Robinwood Drive, Deputy 1st Class Aaron Horton said.

Horton said there weren’t any accidents Sunday morning, but some southbound cars drove into the northbound lanes south of Medical Campus Road due to confusion.

The southbound lanes along a stretch of Robinwood Drive were recently closed due to a road-improvement project and will remain that way until November, said a man with Milani Construction who did not want to be identified. Orange and white barrels were set up Thursday to close the original southbound lanes north of Medical Campus Road, he said.

The temporary traffic flow now has one northbound lane, a southbound left-turn lane to go into the Elks Club parking lot and a southbound lane, north of Medical Campus Road.

Some southbound drivers were continuing south into what becomes a northbound lane south of Medical Campus Road, Horton said.

Barrels were set up blocking that northbound lane and indicating southbound traffic should move to the right of the concrete median strip south of Medical Campus Road, back into the original southbound lanes on Robinwood Drive. A contractor also put new directional arrows on the street indicating where southbound traffic shifts at the intersection.
