Is Hunt Club Rd. & Millburn Rd. Roundabout Actually Open?

I’m not quite sure how I missed this press release but as someone who has been taking the detour route since this release, I can say first hand that the detour signs were STILL up November 4th when I travelled to Beach Park. I will be making that trip again tomorrow and will see first hand whether the roundabout is actually open but may not have time to shoot a video.

Here is the October 10th press release:

Hunt Club Road & Millburn Road Roundabout Now Open to All Traffic
Old Mill Creek, IL- The Lake County Division of Transportation has opened the new roundabout at Hunt Club Road, Lake County Route W-15, and Millburn Road, Lake County Route A-14, from all directions, to all traffic, effective Monday, October 10, 2011. This is the third roundabout intersection in Lake County.

The road closure was necessary to complete construction of a new roundabout intersection. The roundabout has replaced the existing multi-way stop intersections at Hunt Club Road and Millburn Road. This project will result in more effective traffic movement through the area, in conjunction with the roundabout located nearby at Hunt Club and Wadsworth Roads, which opened to traffic earlier this summer.

And, just in case you are unfamiliar with how to navigate a roundabout, view the following video.
