City staff/consultant team will be requesting City Council approval of the Mecartney Road/Island Drive Roundabout Concept as a consent item on Tuesday, July 5, 2022 at 7 pm via Zoom.
Mecartney/Island Roundabout Concept
In the City’s Capital Budget for 2015-17, the City Council approved the expenditure of $300,000 in City funds to develop an improvement concept for the Mecartney Road/Island Drive (Mecartney/Island) intersection to improve this wide and busy intersection for all modes of transportation by using best practices to enhance safety and mobility. In 2021, City staff and Kittelson & Associates, Inc. considered a range of potential improvement options, including a roundabout, a reduced footprint all-way stop, a “do nothing” option, and a traffic signal option. Based on an analysis and community engagement in late 2021 and early 2022, the City staff/consultant team is recommending approval of a roundabout concept for the Mecartney/Island intersection. On March 23, 2022, the Transportation Commission voted unanimously to recommend City Council approval of the roundabout concept with the ultimate design to prioritize the lane transition, bus pullouts and pedestrian crossing safety improvements and with Transportation Improvement Fund (TIF) expenditures to prioritize Bay Farm Island and the original intent of the funds to improve access.
