Getting to school will be a little bit easier for parents in the capital city.
Two roundabouts near Lincoln schools opened Monday.
The first is at 14th and Superior.
It's the largest roundabout in the city, with two lanes of traffic connecting the two roads.
It's right next door to Goodrich Middle School, which is why it was so important it was up and running by the start of the school year.
City engineers say they chose to install the roundabout because it's safer than the traditional cross intersection.
One of the safety features at the roundabout at 14th and Superior is under-street crossings on the trails heading to the school.
City officials say this means kids won't have to try and cross the road while heading to class and they'll make everyone safer.
The second roundabout at 14th and Alvo Road is also supposed to open Monday.
It's next door to Kooser Elementary and is the primary access road.
Both roundabouts are part of the road widening project.
Crews still have to complete the project from Norton to Fletcher and then Fletcher to Humphrey.
The project should be totally finished by late October, early November.
