Roundabouts the runaway victor in Rancho Santa Fe intersection survey


Roundabouts were the overwhelming pick as the preferred traffic solution for the busy Paseo Delicias/Del Dios Highway thoroughfare in a recent community-wide survey.

Of those surveyed, 817 people cast their votes for roundabouts and 272 voted in favor of traffic signals for three intersections on the highway. Of the 1,124 surveys returned, 35 had no vote indicated and will be passed along to the RSF Association board.

According to Christy Whalen, Association communications manager, the board will now choose to make a recommendation based on the survey results or pass along the results to the county without comment. The survey results are listed as a possible action item on the RSF Association board’s agenda for its Nov. 5 meeting.

After years’ worth of studies and discussion, the RSF Association board voted in favor of supporting traffic signals in May. However a petition signed by homeowners called for more community discussion on the topic and on July 2 the board approved conducting a community-wide survey.
