Anyone that lives in the area of North end of Bayshore knows that the Intersection of Selvitz and Bayshore is very dangerous. I have seen so many accidents there over the years and now it seems that they are finally going to be doing something about it. 


Meeting was held on May 16th and no further meetings are being planned. 

What I understood/ took from meeting:

I believe that the quote was 33+/- accidents at the intersection over a 5 year period caused the city to take notice and create this plan.

Construction is scheduled to start 1st Quarter of 2017 after tourist season ends and is planned to take aprox 300 days.

The City already has purchased the 3 wooded corners and will be looking into possibly making them into some sort of public use space, suggestions made were Dog park, Heart Park, Etc...

The home on corner will no longer have swale but pole moved, sidewalks and drainage will be installed. 

Bayshore will not be diverted - 2 lanes will be open at all time as they don't want to disturb the interior neighborhood streets with traffic thus the long construction time.

Cost is aprox same as putting in lights but less upkeep and public safety agencies like roundabouts better. Also will help slow down traffic on Bayshore as speed in roundabout is 20mph


 

  

A public information meeting was held on Monday, May 16 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Community Center to discuss the design and construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of N.W. Bayshore Blvd. and N.W. Selvitz Rd.
