4 CUMBERLAND OCTOBER 11-17, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION "The wall will be kept, but will need to be moved back in accor- dance with the new curb line," he said. "It will be done such that it will look like it does today when they are finished." The double roundabout project at Route 295, designed to create a better flow of traffic through the entire Diamond Hill Road corridor, is expected to be complete in two years. RIDOT officials say added turn lanes and other improvements at Chapel will work together with the roundabout patterns at each exit to keep traffic moving more quickly. Public safety officials have warned that there will likely be more acci- dents in the area in the time imme- diately after the project is complet- ed, but accidents in roundabouts are typically said to be less severe than collisions involving cars pull- ing across multiple lanes of traffic. A separate water line replacement project along Diamond Hill Road is happening at the same time as the roundabout project. BREEZE PHOTO BY ETHAN SHOREY The stone "Cumberland" wall at the Route 295 north exit on Diamond Hill Road will be preserved and moved back as part of a double roundabout project.
