How soon is the roundabout at 27th Street Terrace and Louisiana going to be built and is the building of it contingent upon receiving state funds? How can people who live on Louisiana Street protest this? Will property be taken from nearby residents to build this? When roundabouts are built what happens when fire trucks try to navigate them, in terms of speed and efficiency in reaching their destination?
The city won't know until summer of 2001 if state funds will be available, said City Manager Mike Wildgen. Anyone can write the city commission and protest the concept. No design has been started so it is unknown if additional right-of-way is needed. The design of the improvement would allow for safe passage of emergency vehicles.
