When a peer review by Ourston Roundabout Engineering concluded that “single lane roundabouts could not handle current or future traffic flow,” county council rejected that component of MIG’s NM502/Trinity Drive Corridor Study.
Few people seem to be asking what, if anything, can be done about the $380,000 the county invested in the plans, which led down a proposed road to nowhere.
Wayne Hardy raised the issue at the Sept. 6 county council meeting. “So far, the County has paid MIG $380,000 to come up with a flawed concept for Trinity Drive. Luckily, it only cost $5,000 for Ourston to show that single lane roundabouts aren’t feasible.”
