Blue Hill roundabout gets paved

Crews from R.F. Jordan worked to pave the Blue Hill roundabout road surface over the course of the last week, creating traffic jams as the four-way intersection of roads was reduced to one-lane traffic. But, with the work now complete, the smoother surface is presenting a new problem: speeding. According to the Hancock County Sheriff’s log, on Friday, July 19, the on-site project manager called Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Kane to report “speeders at the new roundabout,” adding that the speed presented a “danger” to the workers. With the paving done, the crews are focusing their efforts on the center circle, which has yet to have a design and will likely be the subject of an upcoming public meeting in Blue Hill.
