Construction to begin soon on roundabout

April 04, 1996

Construction is scheduled to start in mid-April on a traffic roundabout planned for the intersection of Route 140, Taneytown Road and Antrim Road in Taneytown.

A roundabout is an intersection with one-way traffic around a central island. The State Highway Administration says that roundabouts have been proven to reduce accidents, traffic delays, fuel consumption, air pollution and maintenance costs.

The construction will mean occasionally closing lanes between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., according to the SHA. Work is scheduled to be finished by late summer.
