JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - The Arkansas Department of Transportation held a virtual information meeting Tuesday concerning a roundabout at Highway 163 (Harrisburg Road) and Highway 158 (East Lawson Road) in Jonesboro.

The meeting discussed how to use a roundabout and how they allow traffic to continue to flow.

ArDOT allowed questions to be submitted by 4:30 p.m. Tuesday for the meeting.

Back in August 2020, ArDOT announced construction would begin on the roundabout at the intersection.

The Arkansas Highway Commission approved the project in March 2020.
