Many members of the public have asked what is happening with the construction of the new roundabout on Mar Vista Drive. Unfortunately, the private developer constructing the roundabout has taken longer than expected due to underground utilities. The City apologizes for the delays and appreciates the public’s patience as the project is completed in the next few weeks. All of Vista’s roundabouts are built for larger vehicles to navigate through, including the Vista fire engines.
These are the upcoming milestones:
•The base paving on Mar Vista Drive around the roundabout is expected to begin as early as this Thursday, April 25, and will continue through early next week. The intent of the base paving is to raise the current elevation of the roadway to reduce the thickness between the road and the recently constructed curbs.
•The final cap paving will be completed by Friday, May 3. The final paving is being placed on top of the base paving to create a final uniform pavement surface.
•Tree planting, striping and signage are expected to be completed by or before May 10 (weather permitting).
•The private developer will finalize the project the week of May 12.
