Second Phase of Roundabout Construction to Start Next Monday in Jackson

The opening phase of the Jackson roundabout construction project is finished and part two is set to begin. City officials say the first phase at the intersection of E. Main St. and Shawnee Blvd., which began in November and consisted of relocating and installing utilities, is now finished.  The second phase of the project will begin next Monday. The next part entails closing the portion of N. Shawnee Blvd. between E. Main St. and Woodland Dr. A detour on Woodland Dr. will be in place for drivers to bypass the construction work. Temporary traffic signals will be put in on the other three legs of the intersection; however, only a single line of traffic can pass through the intersection at a given time. City officials say this will stay in place until construction is completely finished, which is anticipated to be in June.
