Update: MnDOT reconsidering roundabout plan

Disruptive option chosen, then reaction causes reconsideration

(Continued)

Option 4, along with being safer, cheaper and shorter, would result in higher construction quality, according to MnDOT. In addition, the detours would be consistent throughout the project rather than changing repeatedly as would occur in Options 2 and 3.

The quicker construction schedule would also mean most of the work would be done when schools and colleges are out of session and would be completed by the start of the holiday shopping season. Each roundabout will cost about $2.6 million.
