WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THE ROUNDABOUT? Wally S. emails he’s seen “signage stating a full road closure at Rio Grande and Candelaria would occur (last Friday). Can you look into if this is a one-day closure or we’ll be seeing this for awhile? The automated signage was not very clear.
“For years during public meetings, they were very adamant about no full closures occurring during the construction of this controversial roundabout. Now they are changing their tune, and this will frustrate those who wanted it and those who didn’t.
“Do you know the official cost and breakdown? And why this is happening? I live in the area and it’s 70 to 80 percent opposed, just from word of mouth. … As a resident of the area, I haven’t seen any roundabout signs or anything in the mail giving us a heads up. This is just dreadful. It’s happening really soon and none of my neighbors are prepared.”
Buckle up, Wally and neighbors. The next three months are just the preliminary project work.
