City of Albuquerque Project
The roundabout was constructed as part of a larger development plan involving the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center and the planned Indian School property development. The development of this plan and the resulting roundabout project were conducted in coordination with the community, including the Near North Valley Neighborhood Association.
The roundabout intersection with decorative street lighting creates both traffic calming and pedestrian enhancements that were requested by the community and are included in the plan. These include: the addition of bicycle lanes; wider sidewalks for pedestrians; reduced speed; reduced conflict points for pedestrians, vehicles and bicycles; and landscaping and streetscape features.
