The solution to the increased challenges at the Ironwood-Rockne-Corby intersection is still unclear.

After a meeting where a possible roundabout was touted as a likely fix to the problems there related to increased traffic, people who came to the meeting Thursday night were surprised to hear that the city is more interested in a different solution.

The South Bend Tribune reports that the city’s consultant is leaning instead toward modernizing the traffic signal and making some adjustments to the lanes. No matter what happens, construction likely can’t begin until 2019 at the earliest.

The five-way intersection sees 27,000 cars per day, a number that is expected to rise, and has a history of long delays while waiting for the light.

  1. Anyone that considers a roundabout should be fired! Way too much traffic on this road for that. The property that would have to be “taken” from private individuals alone should make it a no brainer not to attempt. I’m just amazed that someone actually has said a roundabout is not the solution. I wonder why it was everywhere else they have put these stupid things?
