Highway 3 to open today
Highway 3 will open to the public at 5 a.m. today.
Farmington city engineer Kevin Schorzman says work on the area's first roundabout intersection is just about complete. A ribbon cutting ceremony was set for 5:30 p.m., Sept. 29.
Some striping detail needs to be completed in the roundabout. There are safety issues to consider, too.
"We don't want people to have to be dodging cars if they want to take a walk and look around, or we don't want vehicles stacking up on Highway 3 waiting for the ribbon cutting to be done," he said.
The roundabout's construction is finishing pretty much right on schedule. Since construction began in July, Sept. 30 has been the target completion date.
