Officials say North Main St roundabout may not be completed until next year

ELMIRA, N.Y. (18 News) - The proposed roundabout on North Main St. in Elmira is looking like it will not be completed until next year, according to city officials.

The roundabout is planned for the intersection of North Main and Third Streets and Park Place.

It was originally supposed to be completed by 2018. However, the bids came in too high over budget, and now the city says they are looking to re-structure the project.

"We will look at some alternatives to revise the budget and scope of the project, and get it back at a better part of the bidding season," Craig Southard, Senior Engineer in the City of Elmira, said.

Southard says they hope to get a bid by this summer so that they can complete some of the work this fall.
