Mahoning County’s first roundabout will soon open at Mathews and Sheridan roads.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for 10 a.m. Wednesday. County officials and officials from Boardman, Poland and Struthers have been invited to attend.
The intersection has been closed since June 16 for installation of the one-lane traffic circle by Parella-Pannunzio Inc. of Austintown under a $696,693 contract with the county.
“We haven’t had very many issues at all out there. The job’s been very smooth,” said Patrick Ginnetti, county engineer.
The project, funded by federal money and local gasoline tax revenues, is designed to improve traffic flow and safety.
The intersection, which was formerly controlled by a traffic light, now has no traffic light or stop signs and will feature a continuous counter-clockwise flow of traffic.
