Deschutes County held a public meeting last week to get some input from residents on what to do to make it safer.


The county is leaning toward putting in a roundabout there -- to help slow down traffic on Powell Butte Highway.


Long time Alfalfa resident Andy Andrews doesn't think that's a good idea.


"It's a dangerous intersection.  Coming from my home on Alfalfa Market Raod it is hard to see.  There's mention of a roundabout.  I don't think that is ever going to stop the speed on Powell Butte.  It's like putting in a roundabout on a freeway."


Currently there is a flashing yellow light on Powell Butte and stop signs on Neff and Alfalfa Market Roads that cross Powell Butte.


Other options being considered are a standard traffic light at the intersection.
