New Norfolk Roundabout Scheduled to Open Tuesday

NORFOLK - Norfolk’s latest roundabout intersection is set to open Tuesday at the corner of Norfolk Avenue and Victory Road.  Nebraska Department of Roads Project Manager Doug Lollman says Highway 35 east of the roundabout will remain at two lanes. The speed limit will be increased to 60 miles per hour east of Vista Road. Lollman says construction work will resume in the spring, and the speed limit will be adjusted based on current conditions.  Norfolk also has roundabouts at the intersections of Pasewalk Avenue and 7th Street, Pasewalk and 18th Street and Benjamin Avenue and 25th Street. The roundabout on Norfolk Avenue will be two-lane, and designers say if motorists make sure they are in the correct lane when entering the roundabout, they should have no trouble navigating the intersection.
