This project improved the roads on the north end of the Drillfield to allow two-way traffic to flow from Stanger Street to Kent Street and to allow a left turn off of Alumni Mall. The road configuration is now similar to two raindrop-shaped roundabouts. This improvement will reduce vehicle traffic around the Drillfield, which will thereby reduce potential vehicle/pedestrian conflicts. icycle connectivity was also improved as bikes travelling south on Stanger Street no longer have to travel around the Drillfield to continue to Kent Street.
