Traffic has always been an issue at the dangerous intersection on Highway M-37 near Chums Corner. With years of terrible traffic accidents, as well as the new fairgrounds entrance addition at Blair Town Hall Road, a change had to be made. Windemuller was tasked with the electrical installation for the two roundabouts in the first two miles on the southern stretch of M-37.
Windemuller installed a total of 24 poles and light fixtures. These features allow drivers to see the roundabouts at a significant distance, while flasher indicators warn motorists of the upcoming circle. Three power services were also included to control lighting and traffic recording equipment. Additionally, our team installed 11 heavy duty manholes, which included 4,000 feet of conduit and more than 16,000 feet of wire. With the roundabout project now complete, traffic flows smoothly at both intersections and the new double lanes have decreased congestion at Chums Corner.
