It’s designed to help make things safer for both drivers and pedestrians, with traffic expected to increase, thanks to the new federal courthouse.
“I’m happy it’s finally open. I do a lot of the scrapping in the city, and having to detour on Sixth Street has been a nightmare with all the dips and humps, so hopefully, they’ll move one up to Sixth Street and fix that up to,” Harrisburg resident Jill Hess said.
A friendly reminder to all drivers. Cars in the roundabout have the right of way. As you approach, you don’t necessarily need to stop, however, you do need to yield.
