The City of Redmond is going to try their hand at a Bend staple: building a roundabout at Yew Street and Canal Boulevard. Wednesday morning on KBND's Your Town, Redmond Mayor George Endicott says they see a need in a growing area of the city: “There are certain conditions under which a roundabout makes sense. And that's the smooth traffic flow. It’s actually not too far from the new high school. What you know is that at certain times of the day you're going to have huge influxes of traffic." Endicott says lights don't always smooth out the flow of traffic, and if done right, a roundabout can keep traffic moving. He emphasized to the Public Works staff that he's seen good ones and bad ones and this one it better be done right, to accommodate all kinds of vehicles.
