Round About Time

The majority of the roundabout at the South Royal Avenue / Huntsville Rd. intersection in Florence finally opened last week after 11 months of what was initially thought to be an 80-100 day project. All that remains to complete is some largely cosmetic work on Royal Ave. south to Veterans Drive. A lot of drivers coming through appeared to be trying it out. Landscaping looks good, but how successful will this be as a traffic flow solution? (Photo: TVM)
