ORIGINAL STORY: A new roundabout in south Columbia is now open to drivers.
The Public Works Department told ABC 17 News Thursday night construction of the roundabout at Forum Boulevard and Green Meadows Road finished 30 days ahead of schedule.
Crews started working on the more than $1.1 million intersection improvement project in July.
The cost of the project was covered by a voter-approved 2015 capital improvement sales tax.
