The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will be giving a presentation on plans to put a potential roundabout on Highway 38 and 5 Mile Road at the Caledonia Village Board meeting Monday.

The number of car crashes between County Trunk Highway K and the Racine County line Road has not decreased and the state plans to put in rumble strips this summer and a roundabout at Highway 38 and 5 Mile Road may also be on the horizon.

As the state looked at the number of crashes happening along that stretch of road, village administrator Tom Christensen asked them to also look at putting in a roundabout on Highway 38 and 5 Mile Road. The DOT agrees that the improvements made to the intersection have not reduced the crash rate and a roundabout may help fix the issue.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Monday at the East Side Community Center, 6156 Douglas Ave.
