Letter To The Editor: Roundabout Construction – Clear Sight Lines

Los Alamos

A recent letter from George Jennings advocates that a center piece in the proposed Trinity roundabout “should be big.” This leads me to believe that my friend George has never traversed a big and complicated roundabout. It is very important that when one is preparing to enter a roundabout with other entry points that one have a clear line of sight to those entry points.

The roundabout at Diamond and North Mesa Road provides the needed experience. This roundabout has raised ground, a very nice sculpture and lots of vegetation. At my urging the County is now keeping the vegetation short with their periodic maintenance. At least now I can see the car rooftops coming from Diamond
when I am waiting at the North Mesa entry point.
