EYOTA, Minn. (KTTC) – After more than a year of construction, The Eyota roundabout at Highway 14 and 42 north is officially open.

Proposals to put a roundabout at this historically dangerous intersection started in April of last year, and construction got started this May.

The project is expected to reduce the number of crashes and their impact. According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, this is the 19th rural highway roundabout in the state.

Starting Monday, there will be a detour on Highway 42 between Plainview and Eyota while they repave more than 14 miles of road.
