The soon-to-be-completed roundabout at Southeast 43rd Way and East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast is now open, but drivers can still expect delays during peak commute times.
Workers completed initial paving on the roundabout project Tuesday and the roundabout opened Wednesday. City officials said the initial paving had to occur before the northbound and westbound directions could be opened to two lanes during peak times.
Until final paving is completed and permanent markings are added during the next several weeks, temporary lane markings and traffic cones will be used.
