Roundabout at the Esplanade
RDM Esplanade
Many of you don't remember, but the roundabout at the Esplanade was comprised of a bean-shaped island, several stop signs and more than a dozen plastic poles to guide drivers. But the intersection was confusing and drivers would often get confused.. The RDMIA took on the effort to replace it and beautify the area back in around 2004. It was a long, 10 plus-year effort. Today we are proud of our accomplishment and continue to maintain the landscaping around it. ago and the RDMIA . But low priority and a leaner budget prevented the project from happening until recent years.
