Salisbury City Council Considering Plans for Roundabout

Posted: Updated:

The blue paint marks at the intersection of Riverside Drive and Carroll Street are signs of what's to come.

The City of Salisbury is considering three options to improve traffic at the intersection, and city leaders say those plans include a roundabout.

City officials say the roundabout would be the alternative to the traffic signals clogging up cars there.

But nearby businesses like Rise Up Coffee are a little skeptical the roundabout is the best direction to go.


"I believe it will affect us in some regards because a lot of our patrons are working citizens," said employee Vicente Hernandez. "If our line's too long, we will have people who just leave and get out of line just because they're on a short time span."

There are three plans on the table - two involve roundabouts. The other includes traditional traffic improvements.

An independent study suggested either a 120 feet-wide roundabout and another that's 150 feet-wide.

City officials say they'll strongly consider the smaller of the two roundabout plans. They say the larger one will impact a lot of property in the area.
