BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A large roundabout project has been proposed by public works and will begin construction in 2020.
The roundabout, which is estimated to cost $6 million, will be built on Eaton Road in north Chico. It will be placed at the intersection of Highway 99's on and off ramps, as well as the overpass and Hicks Lane.
Advocates for the project say it will improve safety and cut down traffic delays.
However, some community members are not in favor of the project.
Construction is set for the Spring of 2020.
Staff is seeking input on the proposed project and invites anyone to attend a meeting on April 17, from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. at the Old Municipal Building on 441 Main Street.
