Similar to the first Pinewood Forrest roundabout a short distance to the south, the new roundabout will include lanes 12 feet in width.
Each side of the roundabout will include a safety zone 12 feet or greater in width for pedestrians. The interior of the roundabout will be approximately 100 feet in diameter.
The new roundabout will also featured a dedicated right-turn lane from southbound Sandy Creek Road onto Veterans Parkway, according to Pinewood Forrest representative Rick Halbert.
The cost of the roundabout is approximately $1.4 million, with Pinewood Forrest and Pinewood Atlanta Studios bearing the majority of the cost.
Fayetteville City Manager Ray Gibson said the city will contribute up to $430,000 from impact fees.
Halbert said the project is expected to be completed in June.
