Modesto obviously loves its roundabouts, as evidenced by those newly installed around town. However, the city must have taken leave of its senses when it planned the one at Coffee Road and Claratina Avenue. Southbound Coffee, with all that excess road to work with, is now reduced to a pencil-thin navigational nightmare. Oh, and don't forget the bump in the road; designed, I'm sure, to simulate the thrill of an amusement-park ride!
One can only hope that this roundabout is temporary, to be properly constructed once Shelter Cove Church is completed.
