Project Description


The roundabout on Higgins Avenue at Beckwith Avenue and Hill Street opened with a ribbon-cutting and celebration on September 3.


The new roundabout is helping traffic flow smoothly, increasing safety and beautifying the area. It's making travel along Higgins Avenue easier for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians and making it safer for all to cross east and west.
