Danville getting its first roundabout

Danville getting its first roundabout (WCCU)

Danville is getting its first roundabout at the corner of English and Jackson Streets.

However, the intersection does not comply with a federal standard that requires streets to line up after an intersection.

Danville Mayor Scott Eisenhauer said the city looked at studies showing roundabouts as a safer alternative for pedestrians and drivers.

The city will receive $600,000 in federal funds for the project, however, the City of Danville will have to come up with another $150,000.

Construction is expected to begin in May.
