New roundabout open in Lake Villa
The new roundabout at the intersection of Fairfield and Monaville roads in Lake Villa is open.
The intersection had been closed since Aug. 30 to build a roundabout to replace a multi-stop intersection, according to the Lake County Division of Transportation. A cul-de-sac to disconnect Old Monaville Road from Monaville Road also was built.
The $2.6 million project created the eighth roundabout in Lake County's road system. Since traffic moves in only one direction, there are fewer severe crashes and traffic moves smoothly.
