Drivers in Moraga have been complaining for years about the intersection of Rheem Boulevard and St. Mary’s Road. Drivers trying to turn on to St. Mary’s Road often have a difficult time seeing cars coming in either direction, particularly when another car is trying to turn the opposite direction on St. Mary’s Road.
The Moraga Traffic Safety Advisory Committee has proposed putting a roundabout in place at that intersection to make turning onto St. Mary’s Road easier and to also combat speeding drivers.
The estimated cost to construct the roundabout is over $500,000. As a result, the odds of the roundabout being constructed anytime soon are slim.
