Roundabout at US 51, State Highways 22 and 60 in Columbia County to open Thursday

NORTH LEEDS, Wis. — The roundabout where U.S. Highway 51 and State Highways 22 and 60 meet in southern Columbia County is set to open to traffic on Thursday, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation said.

Construction on the intersection in North Leeds began in May. Road work in the area will continue until early next month.

Previously, most drivers had to navigate multiple intersections to get through the area; now, the roundabout will serve drivers using all three highways.

As part of the project, a sweeping curve on Highway 51 that bypassed North Leeds will be removed.
