TxDOT: First lane of 51st Street roundabout opens

February 10, 2018 - 7:00 pm

AUSTN (KJCE) -- Crews opened the first lane of Austin's largest traffic roundabout Saturday afternoon, at 51st Street and Interstate 35.

The roundabout is part of a $16.5 million project to improve mobility through the Interstate 35/51st Street intersection. Construction will continue until later this spring, as crews work to add a second lane to the roundabout. 

Officials hope the roundabout will speed the flow of traffic moving through the intersection, with all of the traffic signals being removed.

More information on the project is available on the web here.
