The new roundabout at Upton Road in Charlottetown has opened.

Construction began in the spring on the $1.3-million roundabout, which was constructed to keep the traffic flow moving for the roughly 13,000 drivers go through the intersection every day.

This is the sixth roundabout for the capital area in the last four years, with the others located on Riverside Drive (2), Belvedere Avenue, Allen Street and at the Charlottetown Airport.
