Roundabout Now Open at Golden Hill and Union!

Parking for Golden Hill Roundabout ribbon cutting

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Planned for June 23

PASO ROBLES, CA. July 15, 2022 – The City of Paso Robles Public Works Department is pleased to announce the official opening of the highly anticipated roundabout at the intersection of Golden Hill and Union Roads. As of this morning motorists, pedestrians and cyclists may now use the roundabout. The detours signs will be taken down as soon as possible. 

To commemorate this significant milestone in transportation infrastructure development, a ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on Friday, June 23rd, at 10:00 am.

The Golden Hill and Union Roundabout represents a major achievement in enhancing traffic flow and improving safety on the east side of Paso Robles. This modern roundabout design replaces the previous angled 4-way stop intersection, addressing congestion issues, and providing a safer and more efficient transportation network for residents, commuters, and visitors now and into the future. Construction was funded with $5.6million in Development Impact Fees and a $360,000 grant from the SLO County Council of Governments. 

City officials, project contractors, and community leaders will gather at the roundabout site on June 23rd to celebrate this momentous occasion. The event will commence with remarks from Ditas Esperanza, Capital Projects Engineer and Mayor Pro Tem John Hamon. 

Following the speeches, a ceremonial ribbon cutting will take place. 

The roundabout's innovative dog bone-shaped design boasts several advantages over traditional intersections, including reduced congestion, smoother traffic flow, and decreased accident rates. By providing a continuous circular movement of traffic, the roundabout minimizes the need for traffic signals and stop signs, allowing for a more efficient and safer driving experience for all road users. 

Event Details:

Date: Friday, June 23rd, 2023
Time: 10:00 am
Location: Golden Hill and Union Roundabout, Paso Robles, CA
Parking is in the PRJUSD auxiliary lot, accessed via Union Road, just west of the bus barn.
