Purpose Statement

Henderson Road Roundabout Construction Traffic Impacts

Please be advised that all traffic entering and exiting Riverdale Regional Park will be detoured through the Adams County Museum parking lot.  Additionally, drop-in drone use is temporarily prohibited in the gravel parking lot north of the museum until the construction project is complete. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding while the new roundabout at Henderson Road and Park Blvd. is under construction. Implementing this traffic detour will help facilitate moving the construction process forward. The project is scheduled to last through the middle of June 2022. The access detour will remain in place during this timeframe until further notice.
