Greenwood planning information session on traffic development

One of Greenwood’s busiest intersections should become safer and let traffic move through more smoothly, but residents need to understand how to use it.

The city decided to install a roundabout at Main Street and Averitt Road after a traffic study showed more than 30,000 vehicles pass through the intersection every day between 6 and 9 a.m. and 4 and 7 p.m.

After several months of construction, the roundabout is set to be complete Aug. 1.

Residents are encouraged to attend a meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the city building, 300 S. Madison Ave., to learn about it.

CrossRoad Engineers will give a presentation providing information and answer the public’s questions regarding the new roundabout.
