Austin Police Department officers will be on hand to help direct traffic at the new 51st Street roundabout, now open after almost a year and a half of construction.

The roundabout has only one lane open as construction is still in progress, though the Texas Department of Transportation expects the second lane open by Spring 2018.
Nearby resident Dennis Sheeran said his neighborhood and the city as a whole is very excited about the roundabout’s opening.
“I am 1,000 percent behind this,” Sheeran said. “It’ll make my jogs a little easier. You take your life into your hands crossing this bridge every morning in the dark.”
Mark Strauss, owner of Austin Auto, moved into his current location near the roundabout four months ago after his previous location caught fire in south Austin.
“We got in when rent was low and no one wanted to be here due to the construction,” he said. “We hope that once the construction is completed it’s going to make the place more attractive.”
Both men admit it may take them and other Austin drivers time to get used to the roundabout.
The roundabout costs $16.5 million to build and is being constructed by Capital Excavation Company.
