REDMOND, OR -- Redmond’s City Council has agreed to hold off on a planned roundabout at South Canal Boulevard and Pumice Avenue, for about a year. That means the full length of Canal, from Veterans Way to Yew Avenue, will reopen Friday afternoon, following a year-long reconstruction project.

 

Council agreed the roundabout is needed to manage traffic increases anticipated with a 192-unit apartment complex planned for nearby. But, possible conflicts with utilities and phased development of that complex reduced the urgency for the roundabout.

 

City Engineer Mike Caccavano tells KBND News the delay also allows the city to competitively bid the project to ensure the best price, and develop a plan to minimize traffic impacts during the work.
