    From Dow: this left turn will only be during construction of the roundabout.

    Well there use to be a steak house and a driving range there. I was coming home from a snorkel trip, many, many years ago. A small car turned there and a fast motorcycle came fast and T boned him and the cycle guy flew in the air and landed on the road. I turned around but the guy died. They then closed that turn lane. Thats been a long time ago.

    I remember that accident Kent!

    That steakhouse RIO was excellent.
    The remains of it still stands with much of the orange roofing tiles missing ...I bet they are swiped.
    The maitre'd was one of the original guys in the singing waitress/waiter place Twinkletones.

    I do not look forward to the craziness of the detours, but do look forward to the completion of that night mare intersection rotary!

    Dow posted pictures of the work on the roundabout in the high rise area. They are almost done the first half. It looks nice. If you can't access it, let me know and I'll post the pictures here. I can't tell from what they said if they are going to open that half once it is done or not.

    They might open it, they left the other side open while doing this side. I wonder if there will be a crosswalk or equivalent? It would make walking to Bavaria from Palm Beach much safer.

    There are sidewalks, I guess we will have to wait to see if they make crosswalks.
