(KMOV.com) -- Next week University City is installing a temporary roundabout on the west end of the Delmar Loop.
It will go in at the intersection of Delmar and Trinity, right in front of City Hall.
An environmental study for the Delmar trolley project revealed the dangers of trying to turn onto Delmar at that intersection and for pedestrians trying to get across the street.
“Safety was a big isssue here for pedestrians getting across Delmar,” said University City Public Works Director Richard Wilson. “That new roundabout will make it a lot easier for pedestrians- a lot safer.”
If the temporary roundabout works well the city will install a permanent roundabout next year with the entire project paid for with federal funds.
