The roundabout taking shape at C.R. 6 and Ash Road should soon be open to motorists.

St. Joseph County roads officials closed the busy crossing on July 24 to permit roundabout construction and Gary Cole of the Troyer Group, a consultant to St. Joseph County, said it should re-open sometime Friday, Sept. 27.

“It’s looking attractive,” he said Tuesday.

The roadway is pretty much complete and landscaping is largely done. The only remaining work, Cole said, is striping of the roadway and testing of the lighting system at the crossing.

The crossing is actually located in St. Joseph County, but it abuts Elkhart County and plenty of Elkhart County motorists traverse the intersection going to and coming from the neighboring county. The new $1.75 million roundabout aims to ease congestion, particularly heavy in the morning and late afternoon.

Stop signs at each approach to the intersection had controlled traffic.
