LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - A construction project that is supposed to ease traffic congestion on a busy north Laredo intersection is set for completion.

After months of construction on San Isidro and International, the roundabout is scheduled to open next week.

Some minor items still need to be completed over the weekend, but Councilman Charlie San Miguel says the intersection should be open on Monday.

Many people living in the area had complained of increased traffic through their neighborhoods during the construction project, but officials say the flow of traffic will be enhanced due to the roundabout.

The total cost of the project was about $250,000.
