In an effort to educate motorists on the proper use of roundabouts, City Public Works and Utilities staff will host an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 17 at Campbell Elementary School, 2200 Dodge St.
The open house will focus on multi-lane roundabouts. A multi-lane roundabout at 14th and Superior streets is scheduled for completion in August. On Monday, it will be opened to one lane of traffic. However, construction will continue on portions of the new roundabout until it opens completely in August.
The City of Lincoln currently has three new roundabouts under construction: 14th and Superior, 14th and Alvo Road and 1st and Adams. Over the past five years, roundabouts have been installed at 98th and Pine Lake, 98th and Old Cheney, Amaranth and S.W. 4th St., West Alvo and Tallgrass Parkway, West Alvo and Stonebrook Parkway, and dual roundabouts at 9th and Salt Creek Roadway near Memorial Stadium.
