PRINEVILLE, OR -- After about six months of construction, Prineville’s first roundabout is set to open Friday. ODOT asks drivers to slow down and pay close attention as they get used to the new traffic pattern at Highway 126 and Tom McCall Road.
Planning for a solution at the busy intersection began in 2013, with the Oregon Department of Transportation and city of Prineville holding several public meetings. The roundabout is slated to open at 9 a.m. but crews will remain at the site to complete finishing work.
Updated 06/14/18 7:45 a.m. to reflect ODOT's delay of opening from Thursday to Friday.
