PALMYRA, Va. (WVIR) - Construction of the roundabout at the intersection of Route 53 and Lake Monticello Road has been completed.

The Virginia Department of Transportation announced Tuesday, November 17, that the traffic circle was completed on time.

The $2.2 million project replaced the old T-intersection, which VDOT says handled 1,000 cars a day.

A 5-foot sidewalk was also added to the south side of Route 618 Lake Monticello Road.
