Drivers in the city of Jackson will have another new roundabout when Martin Luther King Jr. Drive is reconstructed next year. The $2 million project will create a roundabout at the intersection of MLK Drive and Morrell Street. According to City Manager Patrick Burtch, a roundabout is considered a crime reduction technique in terms of traffic flow. Mayor Derek Dobies says the roundabout will calm traffic and create a better environment in the neighborhood. Councilman Jeromy Alexander was the only council member to oppose the project.
