A proposal to plant a roundabout in the heart of Dundee is finished.
On Tuesday, a group of city officials brought a quick end to a neighborhood controversy that reached the highest levels of local government.
A forthcoming, multimillion dollar Dundee facelift included three traffic control options at the 50th Street and Underwood Avenue intersection: a four-way stop sign, the current traffic light configuration or a circular roadway known as a roundabout.
That idea did not enjoy much vocal support from district merchants and power brokers.
In a meeting Tuesday, Mayor Jim Suttle, public works officials and City Council members Pete Festersen and Chris Jerram agreed to a plan that will keep traffic lights in a revamped intersection at 50th Street and Underwood Avenue.
