Project Update: Rio Grande & Candelaria Roundabout

Construction of the roundabout is expected to be complete within two weeks.  It will be landscaped; however, due to the number of unexpected utility locations that were encountered, they held off on landscaping it.  I have funding available for landscaping.  If you want to be involved in public input on the new landscape design, contact my office and we will include you on that list.  Through the end of construction, contact Patti Watson at [email protected], 245-3134, or 269-9691 if you have questions or concerns. 

Not sure how to navigate a roundabout or need a refresher?  See below for the steps:
