Roundabout Going Into Cliff, Las Positas Intersection

The long line of cars that backs up Las Positas Road at Cliff Drive during rush hour will encounter work beginning next week to build a roundabout at the intersection. Designed to be of minimal size for truck and bus passage, the single-lane circle should decrease congestion once it’s completed, which is anticipated to be before St. Patrick’s Day. The design accommodates pedestrian and bicycle traffic and looks to connect with a future bike lane or path along Cliff Drive. Eight new streetlights, 20 feet tall to reduce glare into nearby homes, will replace the three currently on-site.
