Funding for Santa Barbara Roudabout Comes Through
Funding has finally come through for a high-traffic area in Santa Barbara. The proposed roundabout will be located at Cliff Drive and Las Positas Road. According to KEYT News Channel Three, this $700,000 roundabout is likely to reduce congestion during the morning and afternoon rush hours.
There is currently a red blinking light at the intersection which just isn’t getting the job done due to increased traffic. Various transportation officials supported the proposed roundabout, saying that the congestion was only going to increase without improvements. Hopefully, this roundabout will not only reduce congestion, but make this intersection much safer for drivers in Santa Barbara.
