Rockford Roundabout: All lanes open and running

Posted:

The wait is over! Illinois' first two-lane roundabout now has both lanes open.

The roundabout which intersects at Auburn and North Main was open to drivers a month ago but only allowing use of the outer lane. Now drivers can choose to either merge into the inner lane or outer lane depending on their designated direction.

Engineers of the roundabout hope it will alleviate traffic backups, keeping cars moving through the intersection.

Ribbon cutting for the roundabout will be November 8th at 1:00 PM on the Southeast corner.
