Douglas County residents will have an opportunity to learn why a third roundabout is planned to enhance safety — this one at an intersection in LaGrand Township.

The Douglas County Public Works Department is hosting an open house meeting for the proposed roundabout construction at the intersection of County State Aid Highways (CSAH) 8 and 40. The open house will run from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on August 20 at the Public Works building located at 526 Willow Drive in Alexandria. Those attending will learn about the objectives of the safety enhancement project which is part of the County Highway Improvement Plan. This project will be funded through the special .5% local option sales tax which was adopted in 2014. The proposed roundabout is one aspect of the reconstruction of CSAH 8.  Public Works Director Tim Erickson and county commissioners will be available for residents to speak with to share their support of the project or share concerns about the construction of a roundabout.
