Second Roundabout will be Constructed in Union

A second roundabout will be constructed in Union next year. Official are currently accepting proposals from contractors for the roundabout at the intersection of Highway A and Independence Drive with a bid opening scheduled in January. Mayor Mike Livengood says that the intersection will be completely shut down during construction which raises questions of detours, especially for 18-wheelers. Livengood says that passenger cars and pick-up trucks will be able to use C-C Camp Road. Construction is scheduled to get underway in late March or early April.
