Hwy 169, Hwy 37 roundabout


Project complete

Roundabout is built to the correct size

Rumors that the new roundabout at Hwy 169, Hwy 37 was built too small are false. The roundabout was built to the latest design standards and can accommodate large vehicles and oversized loads.

The red concrete aprons in the medians and around the center circle of the roundabout are designed to be driven on when large, oversized vehicles pass through the roundabout.
