KING CITY — A public workshop on the proposed roundabout project at the intersection of Broadway Street and San Antonio Drive will be held in the King City Council Chambers on Wednesday, Feb. 7, at 5:30 p.m.

The City of King’s consultants will share the current designs and provide an opportunity for public input on options regarding landscaping, hardscape and other aesthetic design features.

“It will be a great opportunity for the community to learn more about the project and have a say in how it will look,” stated City Manager Steve Adams in a news release Monday.

The City has received approval for two grants totaling $4.7 million to construct the proposed roundabout.

According to Adams, the purpose of the roundabout project is to improve circulation, address conflicting turning movements, increase vehicle and pedestrian safety, and prevent future traffic congestion. The project will also feature landscaping and a wind sculpture to beautify the entrance to the city.

“The project design is nearing completion and will be coordinated with the San Antonio Drive bike path project,” Adams added.

Preliminary concepts for a series of small roundabouts at each of the intersections on Broadway Street, from Franciscan Way to Mildred Avenue, will also be presented at the public workshop, which everyone is encouraged to attend. These concepts are currently being studied as part of the bike path project.

Construction of the roundabout is projected in late 2024.

  1. People using the road make mistakes (like speeding, running stop signs and red lights, turning left in front of oncoming traffic), always have and always will. Crashes will always be with us, but they need not result in fatalities or serious injury.

    Modern roundabouts are the safest form of intersection in the world – the intersection type with the lowest risk of fatal or serious injury crashes – (much more so than comparable signals). Modern roundabouts require a change in speed and alter the geometry of one of the most dangerous parts of the system – intersections. The reduction in speed to about 20 mph and sideswipe geometry mean that, when a crash does happen at a modern roundabout, you might need a tow truck, but rarely an ambulance. Visit the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety or FHWA for modern roundabout FAQs and safety facts.

    The FHWA has been saying for over 20 years that signal intersections have TEN TIMES the fatality risk of modern roundabouts.
