Ground broken for roundabout at busy north Toledo intersection

Mayor D. Michael Collins said the number one priority for the $5 million project at the intersection of Cherry Street, Collingwood, and Manhattan Boulevard is safety.


Toledo city officials have broken ground on a new roundabout designed to ease traffic in north Toledo.


Mayor D. Michael Collins said the number one priority for the $5 million project at the intersection of Cherry Street, Collingwood, and Manhattan Boulevard is safety.


The intersection, commonly known as "Thousand Islands,' was built 65 years ago to make the five-way stop safer. However, the mayor said Wednesday that the way it was built has actually made the intersection dangerous.

"Roundabouts are, from a safety standpoint, 90-percent safer than signalized intersections," said Mayor Collins. "It'll eliminate the traffic cameras."
