Sylvan Park roundabout work done

If you've been avoiding parts of Sylvan Park because of the construction at Murphy Road and 46th Avenue, avoid no more. Mayor Karl Dean and other public officials will this morning host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the new infrastructure, highlighted by a roundabout, to the public.

The $2.5 million project also includes new sidewalks, 23 new on-street parking spots, street lighting and landscaping elements. RPM Transportation Consultants and Kimley-Horn and Associates led the project with help from officials from Metro Public Works, Metro Parks and Recreation, and Metro Water.
