LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Officials have unveiled plans for a rare elevated roundabout at one of Lincoln’s busiest intersections.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/29mnduG ) that city engineers showed off the proposed roundabout for the busy Warlick and Old Cheney roads intersection earlier this week. The roundabout will rise above a T-intersection.

Engineers say there is at least one other elevated roundabout in the country, in Latham, New York. There are more in Europe, where roundabouts are more common.

The city expects construction on the $25 million intersection to begin in early 2020 and take fewer than two years to complete.

The structure is expected to reduce congestion and crashes at the intersection, which handles nearly 38,000 cars per day.
