Coronado Roundabout

September 2, 2014

The Coronado Roundabout has been a heated conversation on both sides of the table for quite a while, but now it’s a reality at Pomona and Seventh Street. The City of Coronado provided a time-lapse video of the building progress. It is a great improvement over the temporary construction! Now let’s see if we can get a roundabout at the intersection of Pomona, Glorietta, Ynez and Tenth Street where there are major issues with cars, pedestrians and bikes.

Have you seen the new portable restroom provided by the City of Coronado? The brand new and “wrapped” portable restroom was installed Wednesday, August 27, at its location near the beach end of Avenida del Sol. The restroom has one ADA-compliant stall and two other single use stalls. It will be Portable restroomoperational seven days a week and unlocked when the Public Services Beach/Special Services crews first service the area in the morning, before 8 a.m., and will be locked after the final janitorial cleaning of the day, sometime after 8 p.m. The City will monitor usage and will remove the restroom trailer from its current Avenida del Sol location once usage drops for the summer. The trailer will be stored at the Public Services yard when not in use and will be available to support special events within the City throughout the year.
