One lane of the 11th Street roundabout at the intersection of Grant Line and Kasson roads has been removed in an effort to make it less confusing.

Mike Selling, deputy director of San Joaquin County Public Works, said the county has been working to help drivers safely navigate the 160-foot-diameter roundabout that replaced a four-way stop at the intersection in late 2012.

Roundabouts perform well at intersections that require traffic assistance in areas with light traffic. W. Grant Line and Byron Rd is a heavily traveled roadway. A roundabout here will cause more problems with traffic. At times traffic is heavy in one direction. This will slow traffic in the other two directions causing some drivers to force their way into the roundabout. This can cause accidents and road rage. Also, will this be two lanes or one? If two, look at the problems at 11th St and Grant Line. Leave the stop lights. Keep the controlled left turn lanes at w/b Grant Line and s/b Byron Rd. No U-turns. When w/b Grant Line left turn is utilized have a green right turn arrow activated at n/b Byron Rd to e/b Grant Line.
