SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Drivers around Springfield's Medical Mile will have a new road construction project to dodge, starting Monday.

A private contractor begins work to build a roundabout intersection at Walnut Lawn and Maryland,  just west of National Avenue.

The entire intersection will be redesigned from a two way stop.  There will also be a bicycle connection built for The Link route.

Public Works officials say the project should be done by June.
