One long Kalamazoo traffic nightmare is about to end. The Gull Street Roundabout will host a walking tour Thursday afternoon, and then

the Gull Street /Ransom Street roundabout will open on Friday, November 3rd at 7:00 AM.

The City of Kalamazoo's Economic Development team is hosting an on-site event, tomorrow afternoon (November 2nd), from 4p-6p, where you can walk the roundabout before it opens the next day. You'll also be able to ask questions and express opinions about the roundabout and other hot issues downtown. Food will be provided by two businesses that have been affected by the construction, the People’s Food Co-op and MacKenzie’s Bakery. One factor to consider, there is rain in the forecast.

“We wanted to give folks a chance to see the new roundabout before it opens and we’ll have staff available to answer any questions,” said Economic Development Director Jerome Kisscorni. “It’s also an opportunity to show our appreciation for people in the area that were affected by the construction.”
