MONROE - In December, Board of Public Works members heard a report from Fehr Graham, an engineering company, which outlined needs for each area of traffic, from light signals to the necessity of a roundabout at 6th Avenue West and 8th Street. The city hopes to have designs finalized and bids from different companies in hand by the end of February. Barring any obstacles, work is to begin in March or April and major construction would be finished before Green County Cheese Days in September.
