BEECH GROVE, Ind. (WISH) – The city of Beech Grove on Thursday announced plans for a new roundabout.
It’s being made possible thanks to a federal grant.
Mayor Dennis Buckley was on hand Thursday morning to receive the ceremonial $1 million check from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization.
The roundabout will be built at the southeast corner of Churchman and Perkins avenues.
The city will build a new type of roundabout, in the shape of a peanut.
Buckley said the project will save lives.
Officials hope to have the roundabout completed by July 2022.
