Roundabout Article Missed Some Points

Your article (Vol. 5 Issue 14) failed to include the future problems of density at the Highway 41 / Main St. intersection. With the new Hampton Inn, right next to the Morro Bay High School, and the new high volume apartment complex near the northeast corner of 41 / Main St., traffic will become even more congested.  Plus, comparing the Morro Bay Blvd. roundabout to the one at 41 / Main St. for pedestrian traffic is totally wrong as there is no school, especially a high school, nor a hotel near the Morro Bay Blvd. roundabout.

What should also be taken into account is the problem of the Highway 41 offramp from Highway 1 northbound.  Try going east on 41 at 8 a.m. or 3:30 p.m. on a weekday during the school year.

And, last but not least, the size of the roundabout – big as the one at Vineyard & Highway 46 West or bigger as 18 wheelers and vehicles need room to maneuver.
