The city will conduct three open house events to present information about the traffic signal system study, and in particular about a possible roundabout design at the Far Hills Avenue, Oakwood Avenue and Thruston Boulevard intersection, often referred to as Five Points.

An information mailer linked below is being delivered to every residence and business in Oakwood with an invitation to three open houses that will be held to get citizen input and feedback.

The traffic signal system study was commissioned to develop a long-range plan for major capital improvements to Oakwood’s traffic signal system.  Much of the system will reach the end of its useful life over the next 5-10 years.

The  Five Points intersection is the most complex traffic intersection in Oakwood, and its design is central to the safe and efficient movement of traffic in and through our city.  The intersection has pedestrian traffic, most of which occurs in the mornings and afternoons on school days.  The safety of this pedestrian traffic is a primary factor as we study and evaluate intersection designs.

City leaders have not made a decision about the future design of the Five Points intersection, and will not make a decision until a thorough analysis is completed that details the pros and cons of traditional signalization versus a roundabout, and until we hear from the citizens of Oakwood and the general public.
