Hutchinson Roundabout Opening 10 Aug 13

The newly-constructed roundabout on Highway 15 on the south end of Hutchinson is scheduled to open to traffic today (SAT), about a week ahead of schedule. Crews will continue to work on the project through early September, with the work including the resurfacing of Highway 15 from the Hutchinson Airport entrance to Highway 212.  The Minnesota Department of Transportation says that roundabouts lower the incidence of crashes, with a 39% decrease in all crashes and an 89% decrease in fatal crashes.
