ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) Construction begins tomorrow (Wednesday) on a new roundabout in Sartell.

It will be built at the intersection of Stearns County Road 133 and 19th Avenue.

Stearns County Engineer Jodi Teich says there have been a number of high speed, right angle crashes at that intersection in recent years, and the roundabout should make the intersection safer, and relieve congestion. 

It's a joint project between the county and the city of Sartell.

Teich says the goal is to have the project finished by early to mid September.
