One more roundabout nears completion. Douglas County Public Works Director Tim Erickson expects the roundabout at the intersection of County Roads 45 and 82 near the Alexandria Area Area YMCA to be completed by the time the Douglas County Fair opens up on Wednesday, Aug. 16.

 Erickson provided the County Commissioners an update on the overall 2023 road construction season. He first gave his engineering staff a giant pat on the back. He stated that typically crews will put down 25-30,000 tons of mix in a full year and this summer they put down 70,000 tons of mix in one month. He shared that example to reinforce it has been a busy road construction summer in Douglas County.
