After going round and round for a year, roundabouts on Raleigh's Hillsborough Street are finally going to come full circle. Tuesday the Raleigh City Council approved a $9.9 million contract to build several roundabouts on the thoroughfare that boarders NC State's campus.

The bid is $3 million cheaper than expected. Council members hope construction will start over the summer.

Two council members voted against funding the project. They wanted it delayed 18 months because of the sour economy.
