Roundabout at Lakebottom Park to be complete in November


Angel Thomas' trip to Lakebottom Park for play dates with her young son are about to get a whole lot easier with a new roundabout in the area to ease traffic.

Thomas says she remembers the traffic confusion before the roundabout was put in place. 

"It used to be a stop sign here to my left and it was like a two or three or four way stop sign here so you are waiting on all this traffic to come this way before you can go roundabout," Angela Thomas said. 

Now about 90 percent complete, the new roundabout will give drivers an easy four-way access around this historic section of Weracoba Park.

"It's now starting to take form and they are starting to put the curb lines in and having to do the underground and excavations that's kind of the slow part about it," Hamlett said. 

The $500,000 project is expected to be completed by the end of November. Columbus Traffic Engineering Manager Ron Hamlett says the Peanut-Shaped roundabout will make the area more easy to travel.

"It will resolve the confusion and be kind of a steady anchor for the north side of the Weracoba Park. I think it will be something that people use in the future to give directions," Hamlett said.
