Roundabout substantially complete

IOWA CITY– The roundabout at the intersection of W6E (Ely Road NE) and F16 (Highway 382 NE) has been substantially completed. Ely Road, North of Highway 382, was open to traffic on Nov. 22. The contractor will continue to work on remaining project requirements until the spring of 2018, so watch for temporary traffic control changes in and around the intersection as things are touched up.
Buckle up, drive defensively and be patient as drivers learn to navigate the new intersection. Remember, when nearing a roundabout to slow down, watch for, and be prepared to stop for pedestrians. For more tips on safely navigating a roundabout, see pages 18-19 of the Iowa Driver’s Manual which can be found on the Iowa Department of Transportation webpage: https://iowadot.gov/mvd/driverslicense/dlmanual/dlmanual.pdf.
