New “Roundabout” Coming in Marion

Another “Roundabout” is coming to Marion in the near future in an effort to ease local traffic. According to a report from WSIL, city officials say that construction is set to begin at the intersection of Russell and Boulevard Streets next Monday to turn the four-way stop into a roundabout. They say the move will hopefully eliminate traffic backups for both morning and afternoon commutes. The intersection will be closed for approximately four weeks while construction is underway.
