The City Council approved a roundabout at the intersection of Vandiver Drive and Parker Street on Monday night.
The project will cost $900,000, and construction is expected to begin in summer 2019, according to a city memo. The roundabout is in response to safety concerns about the current intersection, council members said.
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.
