Carlsbad will be getting its FIRST ROUNDABOUT at the north end of State Street where it connects with Carlsbad Boulevard (the Coast Road). This intersection has been a problem for traffic because of the current configuration (traffic coming from the south cannot turn left here to go into town) and the roundabout will improve traffic flow for cars as well as cyclists.
The CARLSBAD ROUNDABOUT is currently under construction so avoid this end of State Street.
Carlsbad has commissioned Richard Stoller, a San Francisco artist. to create a large sculpture, “Coastal Helix,” that will reside in the center of the roundabout once completed.
