  • Vista City to install new roundabout

The City is proposing to replace the existing all-way stop control at the intersection of Shadowridge Drive & Live Oak Road with a roundabout. The proposal also includes reducing the number of lanes approaching the intersection from four to two. The roundabout is expected to result in the following benefits:

–              The traffic on Shadowridge Drive does not have to come to a complete stop, but will substantially slow down going through the intersection.

–              No need for enforcement of rolling through the existing Stop sign.

–              The reduction of the number of lanes will make it easier for pedestrians to cross

–              The pedestrian is not trying to judge if four lanes of traffic will come to a complete stop before they cross. Instead, they will find a gap in slow moving two lanes of traffic.

–              More aesthetically pleasing than the Stop signs.

The proposal will be presented at the City as follows:

–              Traffic Commission on 12/6/17 at 6:00 p.m.

–              City Council on 1/9/18 at 5:30 p.m.

Sam Hasenin, P.E., T.E. – Principal Engineer, Traffic Engineering

    This is a stupid idea, probably proposed by one of the council members who lives down in the ridge. As usual, catering to the droves of joggers and dog walkers. Let’s just give shadow ridge to the dogs, they can already roam freely at our parks, so why not?
    Also, this is not a “4 way” stop. It’s 3 ways, last time I checked. There is a giant traffic problem every morning and every evening in Shadow Ridge, why don’t they concentrate their efforts on improving traffic flow, not stifling it more.
