Construction will begin Monday on a new roundabout at Boulevard Road Southeast and 22nd Avenue Southeast in Olympia.

Drivers should expect periodic lane closures and traffic delays through the construction zone, according to the city. The city will install signs that notify drivers of alternate routes.

The average daily traffic count for Boulevard Road is 10,000 vehicles. City planners say the project will improve traffic flow for motorists and create more sidewalks for pedestrians.

Construction is expected to be finished in late September 2014. This is the second of three planned roundabouts on Boulevard Road.
