Big changes are on the horizon for San Jose’s traffic scene! The city has finally green-lit a project that’s been on everyone’s wish list: an underpass at the notoriously busy Fonatur roundabout. For anyone who’s ever been stuck in the seemingly endless swirl of traffic there, this news is like a breath of fresh air.
The need for this underpass is clear as day, especially when you hear that a staggering 60,000 vehicles pass through this roundabout daily. That’s a whole lot of honking and waiting! Recognizing this, the city has already kicked things off by delivering an initial study to the federal authorities.
But here’s where it gets even more exciting. Early next month, the city and federal officials are set to collaborate on funding this much-needed project. The goal? To have this underpass up and running by the end of 2024. Imagine cruising smoothly under what used to be one of the most congested spots in town!
