Roundabout Construction

Construction of the roundabout at the intersection of Highways 171 and 43 reaches a critical point tonight. Dave Mitchell of MoDOT tells News Talk KZRG the intersection will be closed briefly this evening.

"On Monday evening, we think about 6:30, we will shift over from the current four-way signalized intersection and go temporarily to a single lane roundabout. The shutdown to traffic will be just for a short period of time.  We think for maybe about ten minutes to get that reconfigured into the roundabout.  But then once that happens, traffic will begin flowing and work will continue."

Mitchell says work will then continue to make the intersection a two-lane roundabout. He says the project is on time and will be finished at the end of August.
