Roundabouts on Reed Market Road

I have to say that overall I like the roundabouts, they are fun, they display art, they are not usually a problem to navigate.  It was, however, a little boogling to see The Bulletin’s frontpage story on Wednesday about the proposed eight new roundabouts on Reed Market Road  from 27th to Division.  Good grief, you could get dizzy on a street like that.  It is a bit like a cat chasing it’s tail, a mouse on a wheel,or a merry-go-round.  But then I realize that maybe these roundabouts are circles of life, maybe Bend is building dozens and dozens of medicine wheels.  Let’s hope the art in the centers will continue.
