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.
