JOPLIN, MO.--- Heading east from Main Street is getting easier for drivers in south Joplin. Access to 50th Street is now open. It's welcome news, particularly for parents and teachers traveling to and from South Middle School, who had to start the school year with detours. While construction on the new roundabout is still ongoing, traffic is now using the east portion of the new roadway to travel north or south. Work on the project is expected to wrap up sometime this fall.
