The intersection of Scott Street, Toole Avenue and Spruce Street could get a miniature roundabout and sidewalks, called an ?urban mini.?
The Public Works Department unveiled their plans for the roundabout. It will have a concrete center that larger trucks can drive over the top of, but cars will have to go around.
Missoula Public Works employees say it will not only make traffic run more smoothly in the area, but also be a safer intersection for pedestrians with the addition of sidewalks and streetlights.
?This smaller one would work at the kind of degree we'd like to see there, and reduce congestion, reducing waiting time for, especially trucks and things coming off Scott,? said Public Works? Doug Harby.
The mini roundabout project would cost between $200,000 and $250,000. The plan still has to be approved by the city. Harby says they hope to start work on it by June 2013.
