Ephrata Roundabout Gets The Green Light

The Ephrata City Council approves constructing a roundabout at the intersection of state Route 282 and Dodson Road with a roundabout. State DOT officials say the cost of building the roundabout is less expensive than adding traffic lights and can be completed in less than a week. The state is covering the bulk of the costs with Ephrata allocating funds from its Transportation Benefit District. Grant County is also contributing to the project which could start as soon as next month.
