Proposed Sisters Roundabout Causing Friction


The City of Sisters is still contemplating with to do to improve Highway 20 at Barclay Drive. At the last public meeting, City officials announced that they had plenty of input from the public about what type of traffic control is needed at that location. "As part of our 2010 Transportation System Plan Update, the consultants had talked about a signal at that location. But during the end of the process, we heard from the public during many of our public hearings that the community would be interested to see if a roundabout would be a better option." Pauline Hardie, Planning Director with the City of Sisters says they have contracted with a Bend firm to do a feasibility study on a roundabout at Barclay and Highway 20. Since then, officials with the freight industry have stated an objection to a roundabout and say the City would be in violation of a condition of approval for anything other than a light on that route. Without approval from the freight industry, the project could be in jeopardy.
