Alexandria, MN — The roundabout is open! Motorists can now flow easily through the roundabout on County State Aid Highways (CSAH) 8 and 40 in LaGrand Township.

“We are very proud of this new roundabout,” said Douglas County Engineer and Public Works Director Tim Erickson. “It will provide a much safer and more efficient way to travel through this busy part of Douglas County. We also thank the residents for their patience during construction.”

The safety enhancement project is part of the County Highway Improvement Plan and will be funded through the special 0.5% local option sales tax which was adopted in 2014.

This is the third roundabout in Douglas County.
