A Third Roundabout In Douglas County


A third roundabout will be added in Douglas County. This one at the intersection of Co. Rd 8 and Co Rd 40 just south of Garfield. Construction is anticipated to start June 28th. The detour off 94 runs east on 10th avenue SW to Town Hall Road in Garfield and turns left (heading north) to 82. Then turn left (heading northwest) to County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 40. To avoid the detour Eastbound traffic heading to Alexandria is encouraged to take State HW 27. Roundabouts are said to help with sight line safety and will be large enough to accommodate semis, RV’s and Farm Equipment.
