More than 13,000 vehicles creep slowly through one of Greenwood’s busiest intersections every day during the morning and evening rush hours, and the city hopes to make traffic move a bit faster.

Motorists who drive through the intersection of Madison Avenue and Smith Valley Road know they typically will have to wait through multiple red lights to get to U.S. 31 because of backed-up vehicles, some of them stuck in the middle of the intersection after failed attempts at left turns.

Greenwood plans to fix the traffic flow with a roundabout, which would keep traffic moving despite vehicles going in multiple directions, including to and from Meridian Street and U.S. 31, community development services director Mark Richards said.
