Lincoln, Neb.-- After a flurry of crashes and fender-benders city leaders voted to make changes to the controversial 14th and Superior roundabout.
Now, after just two days of construction, the intersection is back open with some improvement to help drivers navigate the roundabout.
City leaders hope to reduce the amount of crashes that have plagued the roundabout since it was constructed.
The roundabout, previously three lanes wide, has been narrowed to just two lanes.
"We're talking about putting some fencing up in the median through here and basically what that will do is limit people's sight distances as they approach and hopefully allow them to see the need for them to slow down and we'll get better yielding," said Assistant City Engineer Randy Hoskins.
Engineers are also working to improve pedestrian walkways. They will have a flashing yellow lights instead of the green ones which, Hoskins says, caused some confusion for drivers.
Hoskins says if drivers respond well to the changes this will become a permanent change.
