The newly constructed E. Viking Road is open to traffic beginning on Friday, November 16, 2007. Viking Road is a divided four lane arterial from Wal Mart Drive to Cedar Heights Drive and Deere Road. A new roundabout was installed at the east end of the project where Viking Road ties into Cedar Heights Drive.
A roundabout is an unsignalized circular intersection where traffic flows around a center island. Roundabouts are safe, efficient and less costly than more conventional intersections. Since vehicles entering the roundabout are required to yield to traffic in the circle, more vehicles can move through the intersection with less delay.
Please follow the link to a brochure for more information on the roundabout in Cedar Falls.
