Neighbors Give Input on Proposed Roundabout

By:Estephany Escobar

HARRISONBURG, Va.-- Neighbors in Harrisonburg gave input on a proposed roundabout at a design public hearing.

Construction could start as early as next summer at the intersection of Carlton and Reservoir streets. Currently, there is only a two-way stop sign at the intersection.

Assistant Director of Public Works Drew Williams said a single-lane roundabout could improve efficiency at this intersection, helping with the traffic backup.

The project would be funded with local and state money and it would cost nearly $1.4 million,  neighbor David Hatmaker said the project would be worth it.

"It's pretty hard to get around over there for a good part of the day with people going to work and coming back from work. I think it's a perfect place for a roundabout," said Hatmaker.

The city will accept comments on the project until Aug. 16.

PAGE COUNTY, Va. -- An old school house in Page County is facing demolition.

The board of supervisors held a public work session Tuesday to listen to the members of the Save Our School Foundation.

More than 50 people were at the meeting Tuesday and seven people spoke in favor of keeping the old schoolhouse. Supervisors agreed that it's important to maintain a building for historical purposes but decided to go with the original plan.

"The board making no formal motion of any type to do their request. Everything will stay on course for the new county office building," said Chairman Johnny Woodward.

No date is set for the demolition. The old building site will be a new parking lot.
