While the roundabout work is complete, off-road work will continue into September as crews install lighting and final landscaping, according to the engineer’s office.

The roundabout was expected to cost between $750,000 to $800,000, and the intersection had been closed since June 18.

Lakota students return to classes Thursday, Aug. 16.
