 After more than a year, three downtown streets restricted by construction have been reopened around the Rise on 9th apartment building at  Locust and Ninth streets. 

Construction of the 10-story building, which began April 12, 2016, blocked or restricted parts of Ninth, Tenth and Locust streets.

During construction, the north half of Locust between Ninth and Tenth streets was closed. Parking was unavailable on the south side of the street to allow two-way traffic. The street is now open, with parking available on both sides of the street.

The City Council approved a roundabout at the intersection of Vandiver Drive and Parker Street on Monday night.

Second Ward City Councilman Michael Trapp said there has been outspoken public support for the project.

"Everyone would like to see it move as quickly as possible," Trapp said.
