We do not want the roundabout!!! Fix the flood issue but dont piggyback something which is not needed and dangerous for pedestrians as well as drivers in this particular application. There is no gaurded provisions for school kids crossing, no lights. Too much of a blind spot on the southwest corner of Montwood and Wedgwood. People will be circumventing this intersection and finding alternative routes through the neighborhoods.
