BACKGROUND:
The Fife Lake roundabout will be a single-lane design, similar to the roundabout at the intersection of M-37 and M-115 in Mesick. The project will require closing the gas station driveway closest to the intersection, and other driveways will be moved.

Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-April and be completed in late summer. More information on how to use roundabouts and their safety benefits is available at www.Michigan.gov/Roundabouts.
