The first phase is the construction of a dual-lane roundabout at the intersection of North White Chapel Boulevard and Highland Street, as well as the widening of North White Chapel from SH 114 to Highland Street. The roundabout will help improve mobility at the current four-way stop sign currently at the intersection. Before the construction can begin, utility lines and a water line must be relocated.
