    Please.......Latest update of the Roundabout @ SuperFoods

    Please.......Could anyone provide the latest update of the roundabout @ SuperFoods AND if the road closures/detours in the area are all back to normal?

    Am I correct in believing that pedestrian crossing from Tropicana area and that roundabout is not safe?

    Here now. Roundabout by Super Food is great and no road closures any more. There is a walkway/lines to cross but it's terrible and I would not use it.

    I was there in August, and will be back in 2 weeks. I thought the round about was great as a pedestrian. It was really easy to walk to Super Foods. You only have to worry about traffic from one direction instead of all of different directions when there were lights. I just wouldn't go at "rush hour".

    I read somewhere that the crosswalk is in a really bad place as far as where it is located in relation to exiting the roundabout. Have you noticed any issues with that?

    Tracey, from what i can see, i would not care where the crosswalk is, i would not cross there. Truthfully, I don’t really use it, i go the back way to superfoods from our house

    I saw a video on FB of people trying to cross at night-almost got hit. When they first said they were going to put a roundabout in, many people on this forum were concerned about people trying to cross to get to and from Superfoods. Personally, I'm going to try to avoid the area. I usually go Superfoods the back way because it is just easier to get in and out of the parking lot.

    Engineers and others come up with ideas, but never think about the practical side or ask the people who will be effected by the changes.
