About this project

Summary of work

Construction of a roundabout is planned in 2027 at the intersection of Hwy 63/Hwy 247/ and Olmsted County Road 12 in Olmsted County.

A single-lane roundabout is proposed at this location to improve safety by addressing the existing and growing trend of right-angle crashes at the intersection, which has a high rate of right-angle crashes (72 percent of the crashes). Recent crash history shows that motorists entering or crossing Hwy 63 have difficulty selecting adequate gaps in the mainline traffic.

A wide variety of low-cost safety enhancements have been implemented at the intersection to improve safety, such as LED-enhanced stop signs, pavement markings and other advance warnings. However, even with these improvements, right-angle crashes at the intersection remain a distinctive crash trend and safety concern.
