Construction is set to begin next week to redesign the intersection of 25th Street, Nine Mile Road and Fairmount Avenue, which will include the removal of existing traffic lights and installation of a roundabout.
This is the intersection where the Jim’s Local Market is rumored to be going, and had long been proposed for development.
The roundabout is a component of the East End Transformation Plan, which includes major sidewalk and landscaping improvements, modernization of public housing and revitalization of blighted residential areas.
The $1.2 million project has received state and federal funding.

Tons of information in Deanna’s link below. No more left turn from S Street, but you get to zip the circle instead. No fountain.
