  1. When I spoke to county representatives at the open house they had a couple months ago, they said they have no plans to address the deteriorating pavement between the new roundabout and Greenbridge. So there will be about 100′ of smooth new pavement in each direction from the new roundabout. Then to the north there will be a couple hundred feet of failing roadway that constantly needs to be patched, and then the beautiful stretch of smooth roadway through Greenbridge.

    That stretch of failing roadway has two bus lines on it. The county needs to find a way to replace that section too. It seems it would be more cost effective to replace it at the same time as roundabout construction.

  2. Is this roundabout designed with buses in mind unlike the one at 8th and 108?

  3. Will this one be as large as the one at SW 108th?
    Pretty soon we will have NO bus service because
    the “way to large” round-abouts restrict bus
    and traffic.

  4. Since I live next door to the old water district, any word on sidewalks with this roundabout? I can only imagine the flow of fast moving cars around it til 1 ends up hitting a person or in my yard. If it is small like the ones on 100th in greenbridge then cars barely slow down. Is the stop sign broken?
