Jackson Roundabout Proceeds

Courtesy of Missouri Department of TransportationThe roundabout project at the intersection of Main and Hope streets in Jackson, Missouri is making headway. An artist’s conception for the roundabout was revealed last Monday at The Jackson Board of Aldermen meeting. The design was created with semi-trucks and tractor trailers in mind. Several tracts of land have been purchased to make the necessary changes to the landscape, with 12 of the 18 tracts having signed six more are pending. Construction is set to begin in May 2016, with completion scheduled for the fall. Officials hope to have it completed by winter so that construction doesn’t affect holiday excursions.
