Binkley Street resident looks forward to roundabouts

Hurray! The City of Soldotna may soon build roundabout intersections on Binkley Street. The safety and convenience of these have long been used in many other places.

I have lived on Binkley Street for nearly 40 years, and couldn’t be happier with this development. The elimination of T-Bone collisions is the prime safety improvement as cars move in the same direction around the circle. The convenience is that busy waits are gone.

My Australian wife and I have traveled to her home country every year since 1988 and I have traveled in Europe before that and have first hand knowledge of the ease of roundabouts. We will value these changes as time goes on.
