Council members were also presented with a new proposal to create a roundabout at the intersection of Second and Main streets and McPherson Avenue. The roundabout, as proposed, would tie in with the conversion of the west end of Second and Main streets to two-way traffic once construction for the flood project starts. The intersection could easily be converted, according to City Engineer Dan Strum, and create a safer driving environment than the confusing intersection presently there.
The proposals were merely a way to start encouraging the conversation and to get an understanding of whether further steps should start to be discussed. Seals and Strum will both look into the pricing and other aspects of both projects, and the proposals will be brought back to the council at a later date.
