The Deschutes County Road Department asked the county commissioners to approve right of way acquisition of land in the area of the Powell Butte Highway and Alfalfa Market Road.

 

George Kolb with the Road Department explained their request.

 

"Kolb:  Any right of way, if you're looking north, there's a curb.  It's a rural roundabout and there is a lot of design considerations.  We have to extend the legs out.  Commissioner Baney:  Well, I'm happy to see wer'e moving forward."

 

This rural roundabout will be larger than an urban roundabout and wil  be able to accommodate trucks and TV's.  It is hoped it will help reduce the high number of crashes in that area.

 

Construction on the roundabout is expected to be started next summer and finish up in the fall of 2015.
