Independence Street Roundabout Now Open

Drivers that use the Independence/Gordonville Road intersection will no longer have to use an alternate route soon, as project contractors expect to open the new roundabout by the end of business on Friday, Dec. 2. The $741,000 roundabout project was partly funded by the Transportation Trust Fund as approved by voters in 2010. The Small Urban Surface Transportation Program, a federal grant, covered 80 percent of the cost.
