Dangerous Intersection Getting Roundabout 10 Jan 12

One of the most dangerous intersections in McLeod County will be converted into a “roundabout” next year. The McLeod County Highway Department has announced that a roundabout will be constructed at the intersection of Highway 15 and Airport Road on the south end of Hutchinson in 2013 for a cost of $1.2-million. The county will pay about $54,000 of that price tag, with state and federal dollars covering the rest. Crash data for the intersection was reportedly the biggest factor in the decision to build a roundabout.
