The roundabout project was at one time a point of contention and concern for residents and business owners along Commercial Drive and Heights Drive plus the eastern entrance to the parking lot for the Harker Heights Wal-Mart and the Murphy USA gasoline fill-up island.

It eventually became a community effort, however, and more than 60 people showed up at 9 a.m. Wednesday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration of the long-awaited roundabout traffic feature.
